When she was five, she moved to Baltimore, Maryland, where she continued her dance training. She was accepted into the Peabody Children's Chorus, and studied violin at the Peabody Institute for seven years.

She performed in musicals around the Baltimore area, and began traveling to New York City to work with a vocal coach/study acting. She signed with a local talent agent and started doing commercial, voiceover and film work.

 

In High School Louisa moved to New York where she attended the Professional Children's School. She continued her training, and began working on various film projects. Later she graduated from The New School where she studied Screenwriting, Screen Studies, and Psychology. She then completed a graduate level television writing program at Columbia University.

Her most recent project, a film directed by Matt Servitto (The Sopranos), is now circulating film festivals. She was an actress and associate producer on the project. It has already won best drama short at multiple festivals, including Cannes World Film Festival, the New York International Film Awards, the Oniros Film Awards, and the New Jersey Film Awards where Louisa also won for "Best Supporting Actress". 

Louisa is currently in pre-production for the feature film, "Nobody's Home", a project that she wrote, is co-producing and starring in. She also has several pilots in development.
