A trained dancer, singer and actress, Kirchner attended and graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. While at NYU, she starred as Julie Jordan in a main stage production of "Carousel."
Shortly after graduating from NYU, Kirchner embarked on the national and international tour of "Rent" playing the role of Mimi Marquez. Upon completion of the tours, she landed a series regular role in the television series "Just Legal," starring opposite Don Johnson and Jay Baruchel.
Realizing that her life-long dream was to be on Broadway, Kirchner returned to New York and reprised her role of Mimi in Nederlander Theater's production of "Rent" on Broadway, garnering rave reviews.
Kirchner then relocated to Los Angeles and landed several guest-starring roles on television series and pilots including "Enemies" opposite Jeffrey Donovan, as well as a series regular role in "Austin Golden Hour." Kirchner recently guest starred in an episode of "Dollhouse" opposite Eliza Dushku, playing the juicy role of a pop starlet with a death wish. The role enabled her to record her own music and perform a live concert.
Kirchner is an avid painter and visual artist with a collection of work which she hopes to showcase in the very near future.
