Cydnee Welburn

As a co-host of Real Simple TV, Cydnee Welburn brings great enthusiasm to the show. A native of Great Falls, Virginia, she spent more than a decade studying and competing in dance. After being bitten by the acting bug, she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Acting from the acclaimed Florida State University theater program.

A self-described “rock & roll type of girl,” Cydnee is an enthusiastic traveler — always ready to hit the road and enjoy a great concert, or just relax on the beach. This sense of spirit is grounded with her passionate commitment to the community, which has found her utilizing her training in new ways: from teaching dance to working with kids at both Theater Garden, a children’s theater company, and the Children’s Aid Society in New York City.

Cydnee embraces the philosophy of Real Simple as she puts together a lifestyle that is always on the go, but appreciates coming home to a calm and welcoming environment. Her engaging personality will also encourage viewers to face their own everyday challenges, from cooking to organizing to finding new ways to unwind.

Cydnee may be recognized from her roles in national commercials (Wendy’s, Papa John’s, Maxwell House), television shows (Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Dawson’s Creek), and independent films.
