develop as an artist
My entire life, I have been fascinated by the effect stories can have on others. My mission as Coach Lena is to empower people to love themselves through their art. Through professional training in Acting, Voice/Voice & Speech, Audition Preparation, and Theatre in English, Coach Lena nurtures and cultivates her students' craft to fulfill their desires.

While double majoring in BFA Musical Theatre and BA Arts Administration at the University of West Florida, Lena studied at The Acting Studio in NYC for their summer acting conservatory program. In the midst of the pandemic, Lena graduated from university and created Coach Lena so students could continue to advance and explore their artistry online. Coach Lena was inspired by cherished relationships with students of all ages from summers positions as show director, music director, and voice teacher at theatres in Florida and California.
Having spent the last two years living in the Barcelona area, Lena graduated this past June from the Theatre Techniques program at the Escuela de Artes Escénicas de Manresa. She studied and performed shows in Catalan and Spanish. Currently living in the USA, Lena is adding Theatre in English classes for students seeking greater communication and self-expression skills from a natural approach in English as a foreign language. She also holds a 120 hour Master Certificate from TEFL Bridge and an AMET Certificate from the International University of Catalonia.

Coach Lena is an absolute pro. Her ability to teach and understand young actors is next level. Her use of exercises and games to explain acting techniques is so helpful and orchestrated in a way that students of all levels get the most out of the experience. I highly recommend her classes and workshops.
