Irene became one of the top ten models in Chicago. She was in several local magazines and won several beauty contests. She built the Showtime modeling agency from the ground up and kept it running flawlessly for over two decades. She became known as the “leader of fashion shows”.
Her career shifted from working in front of the camera to behind the camera as a producer, leading to the creation of two production companies that produced promotional events for corporations, hotels, and convention centers.
In the 1970s she appeared as a vocalist and played guitar at leading jazz restaurant clubs performing her own material.
As an actress, she appeared in television, film, theater, and most notably a recurring role in the popular daytime soap opera, General Hospital. Her film roles include Mickey One, Killer Klowns From Outer Space, Straight Talk, Cold Night Into Dawn,andRiver Made to Drown In. She appears as herself in the documentary, Live at Mister Kelly’s. Irene was also an Executive Producer of the docudrama, Betrayal: When the Government Took Over the Teamsters Union.
Irene is a singer, songwriter, musician, and plays the guitar. She is an active member of Chicago Cabaret Professionals and has performed as a vocalist in many venues including Winter’s Jazz Club, Davenport’s, Le Piano, Arcada Theatre, The Chicago Fine Arts Building, and Jazz Showcase.
