She completed her bachelor from The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark, and finished work on her bachelor film Slug Invasion in June, 2011, whereafter she moved to London for an internship at The Mill in December 2011, before graduating in January 2012.

After graduation she worked freelance at different VFX companies such as Gimmick Visual effect, The Danish FilmInstitute, MoCopenhagen and Full Control Games in Copenhagen, the latter from April 2013 until January 2014. At Full Control she worked mainly with building and texturing 3D assets, but also lighting and set dressing in Unity.

She has since worked in various parts of the business as a freelancer with both 2D and 3D.

She continued down the administrative path, when Film.gl held Location Greenland 2.0 on October 2016 in Kangerlussuaq – this time working not only with the conference, but also with helping designing the new Film.gl website.
