She teaches (or has taught) Clown, Commedia, Le Jeu, Bouffon, Melodrama, physical acting, and all that kind of wiggling it around at schools in NYC such as The Juilliard School, NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Pace University, Marymount Manhattan College, Movement Theatre Studio, The Michael Howard Studio, Stella Adler Studio and CAP 21, in Los Angeles at USC (MFA), The Idiot Workshops, The Clown School, Art of Acting and Berg Studios and internationally at Tisch School of the Arts at NYU: International Theatre Workshop in Amsterdam.

The Bouffon troupe, Les Enfants Maudit, she founded continue to take on power and shake things up around Los Angeles.
