Connie began her career at the age of one in Jackson, Tennessee on her mother's "Cousin Tuny Television Show" in the days of live TV. She attained a BFA in Theatre Performance at Memphis State University and received an apprenticeship at the renowned Actors Theatre of Louisville Regional Theatre Company. Since then she has played parts ranging from Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Mae West, Dolly Parton, Shirley Temple and Carol Channing to Betty Boop - along with various other voices she portrays in her other one-woman show 'CONNIE & COMPANY'.
