Libby Conkle was born in raised in Northern Michigan where she cultivated a deep love for the stage and outdoors. She spent the first half of her career training at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts (Playwrights Horizons and the International Experimental Theater Workshop) and in NYC where she spent all of her free time and spare change seeing Broadway shows. She returned to the shores of Lake Michigan to get her MFA in Acting from DePaul Theater School. While here she fell in love with the Chicago theater community and has been here ever since. She has worked with Chicago theater companies Jackalope, Timeline, COLLABORACTION, The Factory, Broken Nose, and Tympanic, among others. She can also be seen on YouTube in a short web-series she co-created, "The Real Deal".
When not acting she is fostering her artistic passions through teaching acting to young people, writing, and finding photographic gold in the beauty of nature.
