Since graduating she taught the craft privately in Sydney before her move to London where she has begun to take the course to the next level. She discovered Meisner during her early undergraduate days whilst studying Psychology at the University of Sydney. She has since developed this weekly programme and created the Actors Door Studio to bring Meisner to would-be professional actors as well as to any individual interested in re-connecting with their instinctive self.
