"My first acting class was with Mona Lee Fultz at BriteLites Studio about 4.5 years ago. She welcomed me with open arms and taught me the fundamentals of acting. She gave me the tools and encouragement needed to pursue an acting career. As a veteran working actor herself, she has the knowledge, skill, and patience to inspire actors to take it to the next level." -- Christopher Matthew Cook
