She studied at Juilliard with Olegna Fuschi, György Sándor and Martin Canin, and continued studies at the Manhattan School of Music with Constance Keene. She earned her doctorate under Nancy Bricard at the University of Southern California.

Her recordings include Selected Solo Highlights from the Sydney International Piano Competition, and In Search of Light: Works of Claude Debussy. The latter was a featured recording at the famed Van Gogh Exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and renditions of Debussy and Rachmaninoff were praised for “their regality and impeccable control of dynamics” by the Sydney Herald. She has frequently collaborated with LA Virtuosi Orchestra (Carlo Ponti, Jr), Symphony Irvine, San Bernardino Orchestra, Pasadena Community Orchestra, Rancho Santiago Community Orchestra, Culver City Chamber Orchestra and La Sierra Chamber Orchestra.
