Some of her clients included Scientific American, Time, Newsweek, Forbes, and Discover. She continues to hone her skills by organizing information for web delivery.

Her MFA is in visual design with a focus on large format mixed media pieces. The artworks are a compilation of a digital skillset married with physical materials. Animals as a veiled allegory, the work communicates the universality of the collective concerning our perception of the other about suffering and the concept of shared emotion. Through our perception of separation, we begin to see the universality, and we start to see ourselves as the other. Her work has graced gallery walls around the New England area.

When she is not in front of her computer or in her studio, she is spending time training, competing, and hiking with her dogs.

She earned her MFA in Visual Design from the College of Art and Design at Lesley University.
