In 2015, she moved to Europe in order to further develop her career. Since completing postgraduate studies at Vienna's University of Music and the Performing Arts in 2016, she made her European debut as Nedda in Pagliacci for the Oper Klosterneuburg Festival near Vienna and was hailed by the Austrian newspaper Kurier as "the discovery of the evening".  She has also recently sung Alice Ford in Verdi's Falstaff and Rosalinde in Strauss's Die Fledermaus at the Schlosstheater Schönbrunn in co-productions with the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. Other roles she has added to her repertoire include Puccini’s Musetta and Liù, Verdi’s Desdemona and Leonora (Il trovatore), and Weber’s Agathe.
