She was a Core Fellow at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina from 2016-2018, where she studied craft in many forms, including textiles, metals, printmaking, book arts and papermaking.

Her work has been included in multiple exhibitions and venues across the United States, including SPRING//BREAK Art Show (NYC), Woman Made Gallery (Chicago, IL), Weston, Art Gallery (Cincinnati, OH), ArtSpace (Raleigh, NC), Haggerty Gallery (Dallas TX), and Robert C Williams Museum of Papermaking (Atlanta, GA).
