Early life and career[edit]

She began auditioning for film and television roles while attending Heritage Woods Secondary School.[4]

In 2008, she won the title of Port Moody Idol. Shortly thereafter, she appeared in guest roles on two Canadian-produced series for The CW, Smallville and Supernatural, later relocating with her family to Los Angeles.
