After graduate school, she moved to Galway, Ireland to learn from sean nós singers from the Connemara region and to study the Irish language. Soon after, she joined the touring company of Riverdance as their lead singer, the first American to do so. She has also toured the U.S., China and Europe with shows including Celtic LegendsAmerican Steps and bands including Full Set. She performs locally with Michigan groups such as Crossroads Ceili and Alison Perkins and Nicolas Brown.
