She has worked professionally for eleven years in both traditional and non-traditional settings of Performance and Theatre Art. Her training has gained interdisciplinary strength from guest artists in choreography, movement, voice, directing, and performance techniques. Her research explores audio-immersive entravaillance found within the theatrical story, researching communicative performance approaches that engage the audience in aural, haptic, and empathically embodied ways.
