She joined the Newark International School of ViolinMaking for a three year scholarship after which she worked at the Lise Jørgensen workshop in Copenhagen.

In 1999 she opened her own workshop in the town of Nantes, France, where she developed a great reputation for restoring and improving the sound of modern and antique instruments.In France she specialized in double basses, and was well renowned in this area.
