After studying Interior Design at Mount Royal University in Calgary, she completed an Apprenticeship with the Cob Cottage Compay in Oregon in 2001 and Cobworks in BC. Soon after, she co-taught Cob Construction and Natural Plastering workshops with Cobworks and eventually through her business, TerraCobba Designs.
