Career (In Her Own Words)

I wrote dozens of specs while I worked as an assistant to a very successful film producer, and eventually got repped at Endeavor. Getting representation is always a hurdle, so I knew my career took a big step forward. Unfortunately, that didn’t automatically mean work as a TV writer, so I took a job as the assistant to the creator/showrunner of “Without A Trace,” Hank Steinberg in the hopes that being at the right place at the right time (with the right spec sample) would pay off.

I worked for Hank for two years. He read my stuff in year one and let me pitch ideas for episodes. Year two, I got hired to write an episode of the show, which was a great opportunity for a number of reasons. Hank was very interested in promoting from within. The script coordinator and I were promoted to staff writer the same year.

She was a supervising producer from the beginning until "Coup de Grâce".
