Maisie was born and raised in Highland Park, Illinois. Her interest in theatre began at age four when she saw the national tour of Les Misérables. She was a little scarred by Gavroche's end, but enjoyed it nonetheless. She began voice lessons at age 9, and soon after fell in love with singing and performing. She was actively involved in her high school's theatre and choral programs.
Maisie's first bow
Maisie attended Northwestern University, where she received a B.A. in Theatre and Psychology, as well as a Certificate in Music Theatre and a concentration in Theatre for Young Audiences. While in school, Maisie was in 14 staged productions, as well as participating in developmental workshops of new musicals and extracurricular performances. For four years, she was involved in The Waa-Mu Show, America's largest student written musical.
Maisie graduated from Northwestern in June 2016. She moved to Andersonville and is now a working actor in the city. In February 2019, Maisie signed with DDO Artists Agency Chicago. She is also a proud member of mcubed, a trio of ladies singing beloved Broadway tunes. When she isn't performing, Maisie enjoys visiting Disney Parks, playing Overcooked with her friends, and finding new Chicago eats.

Then, Maisie will appear in Paramount Theatre's production of Kinky Boots! Check it out April 29-June 14 in Aurora, IL.
