The pianist had signed up for a local talent agency while studying commerce at the University of Calgary and frequently sneaked into auditions for the theatre department.

The actress landed a role in the Emmy-winning miniseries ‘Broken Trail‘ in 2006 after only six months on the job. The miniseries allowed her to work alongside veteran actor Robert Duvall, which helped her decide to postpone her college studies.
