After earning her BFA in Stage Management at the University of Oklahoma, she worked on a 17-city tour with national recording artists, The Roots. Shortly thereafter, she managed talent for Norwegian Cruise Lines in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, as well as The Rainbow of Life in Las Vegas, and then in Washington D.C.
