She holds an MFA in Theatre Directing from the University of Ottawa, where she staged Sharon Pollock’s Blood Relations for her thesis production, and she has also trained in original theatre creation with One Yellow Rabbit. Directing credits include the world premiere of Corpus with her own Counterpoint Players at Arts Court Theatre, Marion Bridge (Three Sisters Theatre Company), In the Next Room or the vibrator play at the Gladstone (Prix Rideau Award nomination for Outstanding Direction and winner for Outstanding Production), and My Name is Asher Lev (9th Hour). Next up, she returns to the Gladstone with Three Sisters Theatre Company directing their production of Anton in Show Business.
