She earned her First Class BA Honours in Film and TV Production at The Manchester Film School, where she trained in single camera drama.

As an indie director Helen consistently delivers work of high production value, strong performances, and gripping plots. Delicacy (2014), Helen's Macabre WWII short won the 2014 ROYAL TELEVISION SOCIETY North West's Best Student Drama and Best Cinematography at The US HOLLYWOOD INTERNATIONAL Film Festival 2015. It then went on to tour the UK & US festival circuit, achieving five more awards, and nine nominations; being recognised for direction, performance, and art & design.
"Judges agreed that the film had amazing sound and lighting, and one of them
said that at times it felt like a Hollywood movie".
