To this end, she earned her degree in Hal Croasmun’s High Concept ProSeries. She has delved into series, shorts and features, some of which have placed in the top 10 in competition.

She continues to improve her High Concept writing with 4 book adaptations. As well as extra acting on The Assassination of Jesse James, Renee Zelwegger’s New in Town and Wrong Turn 4 in order to see what it takes for the page to become film in different genres.
