She was awarded a scholarship to study as a Postgraduate at the Royal Academy of Music, where she continued studying with Ms. Podger’s, until she graduated in 2006. She then continued to develop her skills as a baroque player with renowned violinist Enrico Onofri. She was part of I Giovani della Montis Regalis in Italy in 2009, Le Parlement de Musique – Génération Baroque 2010, and the Orchestre Français des Jeunes Baroque 2011-2012, in France.
