Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    Studied psychology in her undergraduate education.

  • 2.

    After graduating, worked at a psychiatric hospital and an art gallery.

  • 3.

    Left psychiatry and moved to Italy to study art; never focused on just one thing, constantly "juggling."

  • 4.

    Treasures the "in-between time," the transition time between big life choices, says that's when you're questioning yourself in a good way.

  • 5.

    During one of these "transitions," she accompanied her father's documentary crew to Alaska to study grey whales, loved it.

  • 6.

    Says documentary filmmaking just clicked, might not have seemed logical based on what she'd studied, done in the past, but every step led to where she is now.

  • 7.

    Was able to combine many of her passions-travel, art, environmental and interpersonal issues-in her films.
