She has created original works for high school and university dance companies for Pilobolus and as an individual artist. She has set classic Pilobolus repertoire on high school and university students; she and her partner Matt Kent, were the first to have the process notated by a Laban Notator.

She spends her days teaching and training teachers to bring Pilobolus’s ideals of collaboration and improvisation to young and old.
