Life and career[edit]

Staples was born December 1, 1987 in Portland, Maine. At the age of 14, found her passion for music and theater, performing throughout Maine in community and professional productions. In 2006, a week before graduating high school, she was crowned Miss Maine 2006.

Less than three months after arriving there, she booked a principal role in the 2009 feature film Red Hook and was cast in the original musical, Hear Our Song.
