After years of independent filmmaking in Dallas, she knew it was time to pursue her dreams in California. She loaded up her car and moved to Glendale, California.

Her first foray in entertainment was on "The Bernie Mac Show" as a high-power post-production assistant. No one could deliver VHS tapes faster! She went on to assistant and was mentored/trained under writers, executives, directors and producers such as Nicholas Stoller on the film Get Him to the Greek, Charles “Chic” Eglee (Dexter, The Shield, Thief of Thieves), Gary Lennon (The Shield), Robert and Michelle King (Judy’s Got a Gun - pilot), Rob Bowman & Jeffrey Bell (Day Break).
