Charlotte was born and raised in sunny San Diego, California, where she progressed from reenacting Disney movies in the living room to studying at the La Jolla Playhouse, the Old Globe Theatre, and San Diego Opera.
She moved to the less-sunny Midwest to study theatre at Northwestern University, graduating with a B.A. in theatre and a minor in history (translation: she will totally geek out at the dramaturgy presentation).
Currently she resides in Chicago where she does plays, makes music, and eats vegetables. She has performed at a number of Chicago theatres, including Emerald City, 20% Theatre, the Chicago Musical Theatre Festival, FWD Theatre Project, Victory Gardens, Raven, and Piccolo.
