After graduating, she studied sketch and improv comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York, and became a part of the comedy scenes in New York and Los Angeles as a writer and performer, doing sketch, improv, and storytelling at the UCB, iO West, the PiT, and other independent venues.
