She moved to United States in 1988 and went to High School in North Miami Beach. There she studied Commercial Art for two years against her parents wishes under the supervision of Norma Jane. She also got acquainted with Victoria Gitman  there who is a well known South Floridian artist currently living in Miami Beach. It is interesting to note that they both migrated to USA in the same year, majored in same subjects and went to the same High School as well as the University!

In 1999, she graduated from Florida International University with a BA in Humanities and a minor in Art History and Psychology. She wanted to pursue her Master’s in Fine Arts as a Studio Artist but was not accepted in the MFA program. That was a devestating blow to her because she had been groomed to be an Artist since as far as she could remember.

She worked there for a dozen years. First five years as a government employee and the remainder as a government contractor and enjoyed every second of it.
