There, she was fortunate to study under renowned sculptor Auguste Rodin, who encouraged her work and recognized in her a great deal of potential. She later went on to work under Jean-Antoine Injalbert as well as Cuno von Uechtrizt-Steinkirch. Her career took off upon her return to the United States as she began to study at the Art Students League and exhibited her work at the National Academy of Design and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
