She produces films for small businesses and nonprofits and teaches at Kutztown University in the Cinema, Television, and Media Production Department.

Fellowship Project: Synchro explores the little known sport of synchronized skating that has big dreams of Olympic inclusion. Since its creation in the 1950s by a father who saw the need for team sports for his daughters, synchronized skating has grown steadily yet remains mostly on the fringe. Still there is a dedicated following of determined girls and women who carry the banner.
