She trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama, London, and toured in children's theatre. While doing this, she met Ken, a Canadian actor, and they returned to Canada to establish the Globe Theatre for Youth. In twelve years, until her death, the company grew into a subscription house for adult theatre, a creative dramatics school and a touring company.
Her many outstanding roles include the protagonist in Brecht's The Good Woman of Setzuan (1968); Lady Macbeth (1972); and Aggie in The Boiler Room Suite (1977) by Rex Deverell.
