She studied at Manhattanville Academy in New York, at Columbia University, in Paris, she specialized in design and projects, she worked on architectural projects with Henri Rapin, expanding her training at the École del Beaux Arts and La Sorbonne.
One of her main objectives was increased production, making her designs reachable to the many; designed with the user’s life in mind, making it easier and more enjoyable, the design must respond to people's aspirations in terms of well-being and happiness.
Her philosophy of work was oriented to the above interpretation. The design must be absolute and precise, making minimum use of means to achieve the maximum result.
