She is a graduate of Bow Street Actors Academy, The Gaiety School of Acting and Momentum Studios where she studied Meisner. She was recently nominated for Best Actress at the 12th Underground Cinema Awards for her performance in Mark Dollard’s Hunger. As an actress, she became incredibly disappointed with the lack of diverse roles for working-class women so she wanted to create her own. She has a 1st class Master's degree in Screenwriting for Film & TV from The National film school, IADT, and Warner Brothers offered her a scholarship to do so. Last year she was inaugurated into the Warner Brothers Creative Talent team as an exceptional artist and one-to-watch. Her first script Boxed won her the John Boorman Scholarship at Irish Film School and she got to direct with Boorman himself. She is the winner of The Ronan Phelan Writers Award at IndieCork, 2019. Her feature screenplay Elephant earned her one of 10 places on the Nostos Screenwriting retreat in Italy and it also earned her a place on the X-Pollinator Elevator programme. She is the recipient of the Dublin Artist Award 2021 from the Dublin Arts Council and the recipient of the Artist Resilience Award 2021 from South County Dublin Arts Council. She was also the recipient of the Agility Award from the Arts Council 2021 and the recipient of the Actor As Creator Scheme from Screen Ireland 2022. She is one of 12 writers selected from all over Europe to participate in the Eureka Series programme at the Series Manie Institute in Lille, France. Her TV show Cabaret Cartell is currently in development with Screen Ireland under the Spotlight scheme. She is hoping to make socially conscious films from a female perspective.
