Once upon a time, Sharon was a successful marketing and on-air promotions writer for networks like Nickelodeon, The Food Network, WE and Oxygen. Then one day, she woke up, realized she didn’t want to hit the age of 70 and wonder, “What if,” and got to work pursuing an acting career.
Today, Sharon is a winner of two Best Actress awards, and has starred Off-Broadway in the premier of Tony Glazer’s (Safe, Stain) In the Daylight, directed by the LAByrinth Theater’s Associate Artistic Director, John Gould Rubin. She has also been seen Off-Broadway at the Pearl Theatre where she understudied the roles of Olivia in Twelfth Night and Elmire in Tartuffe. Her credits include The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (Jean), Timon of Athen (Timandra), Sexual Perversity in Chicago (Debbie), Sister Cities (Austin) and Last Summer At Bluefish Cove (Annie), which was nominated for two NYIT Awards. She has performed at Playwrights Horizons, The 13th Street Repertory Theatre and Theatre Row.
The film, Junction, written and directed by Tony Glazer, in which Sharon co-starred with David Zayas, Tom Pelphrey, Neal Bledsoe, Anthony Rapp and Michael O'Keefe, won numerous awards from festivals including Indie Fest, Long Island International Film Expo, Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival, and Cenflo.
Sharon won her first Best Actress award at the 2012 Long Island Film Expo for her work in Off Season, written and directed by Eugene Ioannou. She received her second award in 2016 for the short film, Drug Mule, which she also wrote and produced.

A Manhattan native, Sharon gave the bucolic life a try, graduating Cum Laude from Middlebury College in Vermont where she received a B.A. in English Literature. While that has led to a life-long involvement in environmental issues and conservation, it did nothing to overcome her need for all-night diners that deliver. Sharon currently lives in Manhattan with her constantly surprising and always remarkable son, Jack.
