After she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology, she became a photo essayist and freelance photographer producing projects about various topics ranging from restorative justice in South Africa to teenagers exploring their identity. After a three-year career as a newspaper staff photographer, she received her Master of Science Degree at North Carolina State University where she won an award for outstanding scholarly research for her thesis project in which she used photography and qualitative research methodologies to explore the emotional impact photographs can have on women. While a student in the Master of Fine Arts degree in the Documentary Film Program at Wake Forest University, she won the Student Pitch Competition at the 2018 New Orleans Film Festival and received her degree in 2019. Her first feature film, Proper Pronouns, aired on North Carolina's local PBS station in November 2020.
