Piper grew up in rural New Hampshire, the daughter of an accountant and a teacher, with a younger sister, a horse, three cats, and a black lab named Curly who carried logs from the woodpile into the house on cold winter nights so the humans didn't have to.
Piper started acting at the age of 6 at the American Stage Festival and Andy's Summer Playhouse, and studied extensively in her living room with teachers like Lily Tomlin, Betty Buckley, Carol Burnett, and the movie Beaches.
Now, Piper is an actress, teacher, and Earphones Award & Audie Award-winning audiobook narrator. She has recorded over 250 titles for major publishers including Audible Studios, Audible Theater, Harper Audio, MacMillan, Simon & Schuster, Dreamscape, HMH, Apple News, Tantor Media, Highbridge, and Podium Audio. She has performed Off-Broadway and in regional theaters across the country, London and Canada, and earned a Drama League Award Nomination for originating the role of Anne in Anne of Green Gables. She went to NYU, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and holds an MFA from Brown University/Trinity Rep.
