She became resident Assistant Director at The Abbey Theatre in 2012 and following this became the first Associate Director with Pan Pan Theatre Company. Recent directing credits include Left Behind: Songs of the 1916 Rising, The Meeting House, Wake, The Red Room and Underground Gothic. In September, she will join a group of LGBT Refugees on stage at Electric Picnic with a new play called Just a Shot Away. In October 2016, she will begin a two month residency in Melbourne working with avant-garde feminist group THE RABBLE on a new production.
