Hersha began her professional career at the Cleveland Playhouse (Betty Sandhoff), thereafter she worked in Regional Theatre from East to West coast, landing in Los Angeles where she continued her work on stage, garnering 3 Best Actress Awards and finding herself in front of the camera in dozens of commercials, After School Specials, Movies of the Week and as a regular on the internationally beloved series, Little House on the Prairie.
In LA she fatefully met her husband, Oscar winner John Peverall, with whom she had a son, now serving in the US Navy. While raising her son in Florida, she continued working on stage, until …at long last she could head WEST !
Returning to LA. to my SoCal “home” a very different Hollywood I left 2 decades ago, I relish the change and the challenge,
