She works in production management and creative direction in the film industry, and privately teaches contemporary singing and songwriting techniques. A lot of her works are highly introspective and become more gradually existential with each album. She does not believe in being confined to one genre and feels that none of her albums sound the same.

To NOBODY'S GIRL, her artist name signifies autonomy and agency and she lovingly writes her music for a demographic she calls the Lonely Angels. She says, "Anybody can feel lonely so maybe my music isn't for everybody but it's for anybody." NOBODY'S GIRL currently resides in the Bay Area with her family and regularly makes trips to Los Angeles to work on her fifth studio album, "NØT4EVRYBDY."
