Her dedication to personal growth lead her to continue her education at The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts two-year program in NYC and Joanne Baron / DW Brown Studio two-year conservatory in LA.
In 1998, Gotzon moved to Orlando, FL to be a dancer for Walt Disney World's Entertainment Department as Sassy Buzz in the inaugural parade for the brand new Animal Kingdom. She is proud to say she is now fluent in Bumble Bee.

Finally, she journeyed south of San Francisco to the lights and glamour of Hollywood. To learn more about studio productions, she began doing stand-in work and made featured appearances on tv shows "Pushing Daisies", "House", "CSI: NY" and films "Yes Man" and "500 Days of Summer".
In 2008, she was blessed to help make cinematic history by starring in the dramatic short film "Stained" which was the first film ever shot on the RED Camera to win multiple awards at a film festival pulling in an astounding 13 accolades including a Best Actress award to Gotzon.
