A native of Spokane, Washington, the acting bug bit Foiles at a young age when she first saw the movie, “The Sound of Music”. From then on, she spent her early years watching any movie filled with music. It was at this time that her parents enrolled her in dance school.
At age 4, Foiles won a 1st place trophy for dance which started a career of wins in competitions for song and dance all over the Pacific Northwest, Canada, New York and California. She can tap while “en pointe” which is a very rare skill in the tap world! Not even a mysterious staph infection in her hip at age 7 which resulted in numerous surgeries could keep her from eventually garnering over 200 trophies!

In January 2002, she performed sections of Paquita and Swan Lake in “Bravura!” with members of the world renowned Cuban Ballet.
After appearing in a number of television commercials, Foiles first caught the eye of Hollywood producers when she landed the starring role in the pilot, The Everyday Adventures of Hannah Handleman. She had a wonderful time shooting the show about a 12 year old genius who saves the world on a daily basis.
After 7 years of vocal training, Foiles continues her training. She is currently in the Vocal Merit Program at the University of Redland's College of Music. She has sung the National Anthem at Los Angeles Dodgers and Angels games and recently sang at the Fulfillment Fund Gala held at Hollywood's new landmark, Hollywood & Highland.
Despite a busy career, Foiles still finds time to be a regular kid. She loves riding horses, swimming, and playing with her cats and dog.
