At the age of 15, she danced for Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, quickly rising through the ranks to the status of principal dancer and performing in both classic repertory and contemporary works. In 1998, she began a three-year tour with LaLaLa Human Steps and danced with Boston Ballet (1994-1995) and Washington Ballet (2000-2001) companies. She was also invited to join a production of Coyote Builds North America under the direction of Molly Smith, and performed for a season with Ballet BC in British Columbia.
