She subsequently completed a Master's degree at Trinity College of Music, studying harpsichord and chamber organ with James Johnstone. Since graduating, she has worked with a wide range of ensembles in the UK and abroad, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, and the City of London Sinfonia. She is a regular member of Musica Secreta, Flautotonic, Saltarello Ensemble, and Baroque Encounter.
