Born in Kingston, Ontario as one half of a pair of twins, Keavy quickly took to the idea of making stuff up and writing it down. Her first play, "Princess Quest" was performed at a local drama camp when she was 12. Her first TV script, a Doctor Who spec, was 44 pages long and dreadful.
Keavy studied Theatre Praxis at Brock University. She's the founder and artistic director of Empty Box Theatre Company, where she directed several classic plays, and wrote/devised weird feminist ones. Her thesis project at Brock, "CNT: Welcome to the Boardwomb", was an immersive theatre piece about a television network in a matriarchal alternate universe.
Upon graduating from Brock, Keavy moved to Toronto to pursue theatre directing. After a few years pouring her earnings into self-produced indie theatre attended by no-one, Keavy turned her attention toward television, and enrolled in Humber College to study Television Writing and Producing.
Since leaving Humber, Keavy's focus has beenon gaining industry experience, and polishing her original TV pilots.
