She is especially passionate about the integration of music into all communities and has worked with organisations such as TiPP (Theatre in Prisons and Probation), SoundUp Arts and the Benedetti Foundation. She began learning the cello at the age of 7 in Lincolnshire and developed a passion for chamber and orchestral playing very early on. In 2016, she began her undergraduate at the Royal Northern College of Music where she studied with Hannah Roberts and Jennifer Langridge.
