A few years later, she started working in the USA as a design producer for HGTV USA’s Secrets From A Stylist, with her work featured on The Rachel Ray Show.For the past decade, she has continued her TV career as a designer, creating both elegant and innovative spaces for HGTV Canada’s hit shows Home To Go, Rooms That Rock, and Food Network's Restaurant Makeover and Restaurant Takeover; art directed for HGTV's Disaster DIY, Design Interns and SLICE's Superstar Hair Challenge.
