Originally from California, Dresback has lived in Texas and Arizona, currently residing in Arizona. Right after graduating from college she started a video production company, creating industrial videos for several years. After spending twenty six years in corporate America, she got the itch to come back and do some filmmaking. She first started doing some narrative filmmaking in 2007, and since then has done almost forty short films. In the last ten years, Dresback has been writing novels, writing her first one in 2014, after having moved to a small town. She started by taking film ideas, and turning them into novels, and is now in the process of converting them back to films. 

Dresback has a Masters in Adult Education and a Bachelors in Human Services, spent many years in human resources and leadership management, so a lot of the inspiration for her films comes from people and the community around her. She is a collaborator at heart, and believes the most rewarding part of filmmaking is working with people doing what they’re passionate about. She never went to film school, but taught herself in college by making her own films. To her, the most important factor in filmmaking is starting with a good script and finding that core team you can be creative with. 

Dresback finds her motivation in the desire to continue to get people to tell their stories, whether it be in film or book format. Her inspiration to be a filmmaker came from wanting to make people feel something and start conversations. 

Dresback advises young filmmakers above all to go out and meet like minded people. “Really connecting with people is so critical, even if it’s a small group of people. Every time you do a film, you’re going to learn something.” 
All of Dresback’s films and novels, including one of her favorites, Blue Copper, can be found on her website.
