...is a filmmaker from the Toronto area and graduate of Ryerson University's RTA School of Media (fka Radio & Television Arts) program. In 2014, she earned a Tara Award nomination ('Best Upper Year Script') for UNDERside, a student-based webseries project highlighting underprivileged youth based on their social class, gender, and race.
In the past, she has worked in TV broadcast journalism as a freelance news writer and chase producer at CTV News Channel.

Her script, 'ROOM 219' (formerly called 'Diagnosis'), placed in the quarterfinals for ScreenCraft's Pilot Launch TV Script Contest. That same script later took her to the Caribbean where she was a recipient to mentorship under the Bahamas International Film Festival 2015 Screenwriters Residency Program.
