She studied for eleven years at the Kim Harvey School of Dance in Canberra before moving to The Australian Ballet School in 2005. She was accepted into The Australian Ballet in 2008, where she has had the opportunity to travel to Paris, London, New York, Japan, San Francisco and Los Angeles. She has loved working with many choreographers including Nicolo Fonte, Graeme Murphy, Tim Harbour, Stephen Page and Stephen Baynes.
