Born and raised in Austin, Texas, White was late to her high school sophomore English class so often that she accumulated two-and-a-half hours of detention. When she arrived at detention, she discovered that her English teacher was holding auditions for the school's production of Guys and Dolls.
He told her that she could avoid sitting through detention if she would audition for the play. White took a chance and auditioned, winning the role of Miss Adelaide. She found her calling and has been acting ever since.
White lives in the New York area with her Pomeranian, Lulu. She enjoys playing golf and spending time on her family's ranch in Texas. She is active in Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and she supports multiple environmental causes.
