She continued her work in New York, at the Creative School of Music studying with The Art Ensemble of Chicago and many other Cutting edge Jazz Artists. . Later she toured Mexico with the Taumbu International Ensemble. All of those experiences help mold her unique approach based on World Music influences and drawing on the trance inducing and spirit calling focus of African and Indigenous approaches to music. She honed her abilities in Latin Jazz heading the Kokopelli Latin Jazz Ensemble where she had the privilege to work with drummer Skip Howlett known for his work with Mongo Santamaria and Tito Puente, as well as Cuban Bassist Ignacio Arango. For 6 years the group held a Sunday nightspot at Croce's Jazz Bar in San Diego and performed at Jazz Festivals opening for artists such as Arturo Sandoval, David Murray, Eddie Palmieri, Poncho Sanchez and Jane Bunnet.
