Inspired by a passion for film from a young age, she fed her interest by attending the Canadian College of Performing Arts, receiving her Certificate in Musical Theatre. Then going on to train in acting for film, television and commercials with some of the best coaches Vancouver has to offer, including Jeb Beach, Andrew McIlroy, John Emmet Tracy and Ingrid Torrance.
Her enthusiasm for the industry has led her to explore many facets.
