Although she now is based out of Toronto, Rebecca was born and raised in Vancouver, where she attended the prestigious Studio 58 theatre training program and graduated at the top of her class in 2002. Immediately after graduation she carved out a home for herself in the professional theatre scene in Vancouver playing lead roles on some of the cities largest stages. At the end of her first year as a professional she was honoured to receive the Jessie Award for Most Promising Newcomer.

Rebecca's expressive face can be seen on numerous television commercials across the country and she is proud to have appeared on the indie film circuit at numerous festivals worldwide including the TIFF and Sundance Film Festivals. Once in awhile you can catch her belting it out in a musical, but most of the time she can be found quietly strumming her guitar trying desperately to write songs...don't all actors wish they were rock stars? And vice versa?
