"To me, one of the most important things about theatre is the empathy and understanding stories can create to those who are open to the experience. When we set aside societal judgments and exhaustive stereotypes and embrace differences by learning of others triumphs and sorrows, we can only become better people, and that's exactly what this world needs right now."

Petrucka has also appeared in numerous commercials, including Fruit Ninja, Orabrush, Oreck of Utah, and Orchard Supply Hardware, among many. She has participated in multiple theater festivals, and is an accomplished playwright authoring, Vendetta Day, The Beauty of Affirming, The Calendar, The Hopeful, Peaceful Pixel of My Genuinely Lived Life, to name a few.

She also has a Master of Arts in Theater from Utah State University and a Bachelor of Science from Southern Utah University.
