Rebecca established her professional credentials at Magnum Photos where she honed her craft working with Susan Miselas, recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship Award. Subsequent professional training included positions working with many world-renowned photojournalists such as Mary Ellen Mark and portrait photographers including Andew Eccles.
The full breath of Rebecca's twenty years of experience in the healthcare industry includes national and international engagements with organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, The Red Cross, The George Soros Foundation, Special Olympics, The New Jersey Council on Developmental Disabilities, United Nations Refugee Agency and others.

Rebecca's images are dedicated to capturing the subtle blend of each subject's unique, authentic narrative and the basic humanity that is immediately familiar and common to us all.
Her twenty years of service to organizations devoted to the special needs and developmental disabilities community has enabled Rebecca to identify and convey each client's distinct message through her images. A visual storyteller in the field, her images appear in news periodicals, magazines and books, and span the gamut of marketing media from print peripherals to online properties to digital and interactive media.
