Valuing artistic practice as a form of research and scholarly pursuit, she also continues honing her craft as a new play and production dramaturg. She recently completed her MFA in Dramaturgy at the University of Iowa with her thesis focusing on the influence of Japanese noh and kabuki theatre on Tennessee Williams' late plays. Previously, she spent a year in Japan seeing theatre and teaching English to children and was also a Directing and Dramaturgy Intern at Portland Stage. She received her BA in Theatre and Anthropology from The University of Denver
