She received her BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art, after which she was a Public Art Curatorial Fellow and Assistant Educator at Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City. She was a 2018 fellow at the Ox-Bow School of Art in Saugatuck, MI and a 2019 Shandaken Projects resident at the Storm King Art Center in New Windsor, NY.
