Emerald was born and raised in Riverside and began her performing career in the 5th grade with the Riverside Children's Theatre. She continued playing onstage throughout high school and has done a few, as in 2, community theatre productions. Her favorite rolls include sourdough, sweet and french bread. Ultimately she found her true love was being backstage organizing mass chaos in the dark and making the magic happen. Emerald works throughout the Inland Empire mainly stage managing and doing just about any tech job you can name. She's young but don't let that fool you when there's work to done and you're in her way. When not yelling at actors, Emerald fills her time with looking up crock pot recipes, making art projects and fostering stray cats. She joined Gourmet just last year and appreciates the opportunities, the experience and the people.
