Fiona is an Ottawa-born Director, Writer, Performer, and Educator with a focus in original, multidisciplinary works.
Fiona co-founded Bad Hats in 2015 in an effort to create a space that championed artists with an appetite for collaborative working models and stories that implore our curiosity. Both in the work she creates and the work she facilitates, Fiona looks for ways to highlight the wisdom of our younger generations and offer it to the generations that have come before; as a gift, as a request, as a challenge. Fiona is committed to creating environments centred around play as an act of resistance. Outside of Bad Hats, select directing credits: Holiday Inn (Asst. Shaw Festival); Uncovered: The Music Of Dolly Parton / Baapii Roho (Musical Stage Company); Afro-Peruana (Canadian Stage); Mamma Mia! / American Idiot / Les Miserable In Concert (YES Theatre).

Fiona is a multiple Dora Mavor Moore Award winning performer and nominated director, she is a graduate of George Brown Theatre School’s class of 2014.
