Studlien-Webb holds an M.F.A. from Temple University and a B.F.A. from The Ohio State University's Department of Dance. Her recent adventures in teaching have taken her internationally to the Ladek Zdroj International Dance Festival in Poland (2013 and 2008) and Claremont Project in London England (2014). Studlien-Webb’s scholarly research for the past ten years focuses on environmental sustainability. This scholarship translates into her choreographic compositions; E.A.R.T.H.  (Evolution Arises Revealing True Humanity) (2007), Shared Ignorance (2011), Re[F]use (2013), Continuous Cycle (2015), and Environmental Intervention (2016).

She also engages in a private yoga practice.
