She moved to Richmond to become a musician, playing small venues, traveling to open mic nights, and touring with a local Indie band, Mammoth Indigo.

A series of three unusual phone calls in the same day provoked her to audition for American Idol Season XIV. She moved to New Orleans, busking on street corners until boarding the crazy Idol-Go-Round with hundreds of other hopefuls who made the initial cut.
