Boasting many years’ experience singing in choirs and A Cappella quartets and playing in orchestras, big bands, and in jazz, hip hop, funk, fusion, soul, and post-rock bands, she debuted on the professional theatre stage playing the role of Mary in Darlinghurst Theatre Company's 2023 production of Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, playing clarinet and bass clarinet, following this with a position as Assistant Musical Director in Hayes Theatre Co.'s multiple award winning 2023 production of A Little Night Music, playing clarinet and bass clarinet in the pit.
