A year after the series ended, she reprised the role in "Borg Invasion 4-D" at Star Trek: The Experience. She attended Rhodes University in Grahamstown where she pursued an undergraduate degree in psychology and literature, but quickly turned to acting, earning an honors degree in drama from Rhodes, before a moving to London to pursue a new career path.
