When Rebecca was fourteen, her single mother moved Rebecca and her four siblings to a small town in Washington where they informally adopted seven orphans, growing their family to a household of thirteen people and living continuously on the brink of homelessness. 
This lifestyle imbued her with a first-hand understanding of what it means to struggle, to feel vulnerable, and how to create a network through shared work and vision. Her siblings were inclined toward music, but Rebecca felt a profound pull to the art of filmmaking, dreaming of the day she would be able to hold a film camera.
 
She used her aptitude for photography to portray both the difficulties and beauties inherent in conflict. She attributes her tumultuous and nomadic childhood for teaching her to be nimble and flexible in the ring of life at its toughest times - qualities she brings to film directing as well as business administration.
Having established the non-profit organization Complete Picture in 2018, Rebecca
focuses her time, talent and passion on helping individuals who are facing long prison sentences. Along with her wide-ranging body of film work experience, she brings her collection of state-of-the-art film equipment and highly trained professional film crews to work tirelessly with like-minded legal professionals and community leaders in the pursuit of a more equitable and purposeful judicial system.
