Cline was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area where she has performed in musical theater since middle school. She also has a background in harp. During the height of the pandemic, she and a group of students got together with a teacher and composer to write, compose, and film a musical entitled Forgotten Voices. Here, she discovered her passion for writing music and dialogue. Many thanks to Erica Smith and Phil Schroeder, who were invaluable in this process.
