IMDb Bio:

Becca minored in theatre at Missouri Western State University where she studied the craft of acting and production under the direction of James V. Buglewicz. Becca acted in, and assisted with the production of several college plays and her interest in theatre blossomed into a life-long passion. Becca was compelled to write the heart-wrenching story of her own family (Pinochle) and their experience with hereditary cancer. Her family's involvement with the research of Dr. Henry Lynch (Creighton University) lead to Dr. Mary Claire King and the discovery of the BRCA1 gene. Soon after writing her book: And the Birds are Singing, Becca was asked to ghostwrite a similar story, Annie Parker Decoded, also about the BRCA1 gene. 

 

Becca's passion for writing remained with her.  For several years she continued improving the art of her screenwriting. She competed in film festivals throughout the United States and received three different Official Selections awards while continuing her theatrical pursuit. Becca received her big break as the co-writer of Christmas at the Chateau which debuted on Showtime and Amazon Prime in the 2019 Christmas season.  Her most recent accolade was as the Assistant Producer on the film: Accidental Family. Becca also reclaimed her skills as an actor in Accidental Family and played the role of Becca Bailey.
