She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from UW-Milwaukee and Master of Arts degree in Art Education from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been shown nationwide including, “Fractures and Dislocations: Excavating Histories” at the International Surgical Science Museum in Chicago and, “Deities: Embodying the Fragmented”, which she curated and exhibited at Bay View Gallery Night.
