Her one act, 3boys, published by Original Works Publishing, received a 4-star review by Time Out magazine for its an 2010 NYC Fringe production. Other plays include Hands (produced by City Theatre), Unkempt (produced at the Sam French Off Broadway Play Festival), Cal & Grey (produced at Thespis Theater Festival and the NYC International Fringe Festival), Guidance, All We Are, and Brightly Shone The Moon.
