2010 I finished year one of FdA Theatre and Performance studies at University of Central Lancashire. Due to lack of funding I had to put this on "pause". Currently I am in a Watch This Space Playback Theatre in Burnley and started to do stand-up comedy.
Last year I played role of Maid in F.G.Lorka's Blood Wedding, CTL Productions Manchester,
Also I started my own small theatre company, it's in a very early formative state right now. I wrote a play for this purpose and also staged it.

My latest interest is Stand-up comedy, I gave it a try for few times and decided that I will carry on.

I worked as an extra in House Full (Bollywood). I worked as an extra in the British feature film The Dutches (aristocrat) and in the Faintheart and in several TV films and drama series.
I played a role of mother in student's film Call Me By His Name (Preston University),role of bored visitor in Swallowing Saltwater (Manchester University), role of Melissa in Coffee Days (Staffordshire University) and role of wife in Consergience (Staffordshire University). Recently (July 2010) I played a role of judge in a music video And a main role in short film "The happiest Day of My Life" (Dec. 2010)
I have a long term experience in amateur/student theatres from Latvia. When I studied in Latvia States Conservatoire, there where a course of Theatre Artistic Directors and I took part in lots of their course works as an actress. Also I visited Edinburgh 'Fringe' festival twice as Students' Theatre actress in Eugene Ionesco's The Bold Primadonna (Mery the maid) and Carol Pinter's Mountain Language (mother).
