During this time she passed her Part 3 examinations and gained 4 years of experience working on listed and nonlisted buildings, including adaptive re-use, contemporary intervention, conservation, and research into energy efficiency of historic buildings which formed part of the Historic Scotland Technical Research Series.

In early 2014, she started her own practice as a sole practitioner and works on a wide variety of existing buildings with clients such as Castle Rock Edinvar Housing Association and the Jedburgh
