Shortly after watching an episode of Saturday Night Live, Roberta’s mother went into labor- comedic timing is in her blood. Carol Burnett chose Roberta to play a young version of herself in Hollywood Arms at the Pasadena Playhouse, marking her regional theatre debut. For two years she played "Samantha" in The American Girls Revue at the Grove Los Angeles. Her first kiss was in an acting class and her second was in an episode of iCarly (“iPity the Nevel”) in which she played an obsessive fan girl. In May 2020 she will graduate from Columbia University with her MFA in Acting. She has her BFA from Texas State University and she has also studied at The American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco, The Globe in London, and The Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford UK. She loves margaritas, poodles, and sarcasm. She is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA and AEA.
