As a SAG-AFTRA actor her credits include shows like “Speechless”, “The Night Shift” and even a recurring voice of Sophia on the animated show “Lizzy”. Currently, she is attending the Second City Conservatory and is so excited to have been cast in her first adult Longform Ensemble! Philena is truly honored to be a part of the Second City family!
