As a child Louisa began to study tap, jazz, ballet, and modern dance. She was accepted into the Peabody Children's Chorus, and studied violin at the Peabody Institute for seven years. She started to perform in local 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.

Louisa's most recent project is a feature film that she both wrote and co-produced titled Nobody's Home, which was directed by Michelle Bossy (Under the Lantern Lit Sky). Louisa played a lead role in the film alongside Tom Lipinski (Snowpiercer), Baize Buzan (Broadway's To Kill A Mockingbird), Ruffin Prentiss (Insecure), Julio Lourido (Dominant Speciesand Gabe Rush (Grand Budapest Hotel). The film is currently in Post-Production and is set for release in 2023.

It has already won best drama short at multiple festivals, including Cannes World Film Festival, the New York International Film Awards, and the New Jersey Film Awards where Louisa also won for "Best Supporting Actress".
