Her mother pushed her to pursue a job at the BBC, and she became part of the Drama department. Having learnt from others in the department, her work on Marco Polo was her first as a production assistant on her own.
After her work on Doctor Who, she continued working at the BBC for some years before moving to New Zealand and then Canada, working in television production in both. (DWM 557)
