After moving to St. Louis she took classes at the Craft Alliance and joined the St. Louis Weaver's Guild. The Guild was very supportive and gave her several scholarships to study at Penland School of Crafts in the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina. She has taught weaving in St. Louis, Las Cruces, New Mexico and in Utah. Her work has appeared in national shows associated with weaving in St. Louis, Atlanta, Portland and Long Beach.
