Fiona has had the privilege of collaborating with such companies as Canadian Stage, The Blyth Festival, The Musical Stage Company, Young People’s Theatre, Driftwood Theatre, Bad New Days, YES Theatre, Theatre Gargantua and Soulpepper Theatre. Fiona is a Dora Mavor Moore Award winner and nominee, and the recipient of the Jon Bannerman Scholarship for Theatre. She is a graduate of George Brown Theatre School’s class of 2014.

In her work with Bad Hats, Fiona is committed to generating environments centred around play as an act of resistance.
