She began to pursue her dream career as a ballerina as soon as it was available to her at the age of 10. Izabella was accepted at the National Ballet    School in Warsaw and, though her teachers were concerned about what seemed to be some flexibility limitations of her body from the start, Izabella was determined to realize her dream. She would simply need to train harder and longer than the other dancers, and so she did. She became accomplished so quickly that at the age of 15 she was recruited to go to New York on full scholarship and study at the School of American Ballet. Izabella was on her way to the NYC Ballet and the spotlight of her dreams. However, her body could no longer withstand the rigors of a seven-day a week ballet-training schedule, and in 1997 she suffered from vertebrae, knee and ankle injuries - in a blink, her career as a ballet dancer was over.

               She found herself 17 years old and wondering what career she would ever find that would fulfill her soul   the same way dance did. It didn't take long for destiny to reveal its new and improved plan for Izabella. While back   in Warsaw and recovering, a casting director who was working with Izabella's parents asked if she would play a part in a TV movie, "Lithuania You're My Motherland". She accepted, not knowing where else to turn. From the first moment in front of the cameras, Izabella was hooked. Her calling to act rang so loudly in her heart that it was unmistakable and made so much sense out of what was up until that moment a confusing disappointment.

               Once bitten by the acting bug, and never a lady to do anything only half way, shortly before her 18th   birthday Izabella was headed back to America, only this time, as an actor. She immediately began training at The    Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and laying the groundwork for a successful career as an actor. Sewn instantly into  the hearts of everyone she meets, it didn't take long before the business urged Izabella to become a bi-coastal performer. She came out to Los Angeles just after she turned 18 and a series of fortuitous event resulted in her landing a much sought-after role in Jerry Bruckheimer's Wygrane marzenia (2000) playing the heart-breaker "Cammie". This role put her on the fast track in Hollywood, and she also got a slew of magazine covers and billboards as well! She followed "Coyote Ugly" with a leading role in J.S. Cardone's Straceni (2001) and Minimal Knowledge (2002). She has also appeared in The Shore (2005), starring along side Lesley Ann Warren and Ben Gazzara. With a deep passion for dance, movement and the spotlight ever in her soul, Izabella starred alongside hugely accomplished actors Derek Jacobi and Michael Lonsdale in Na trapezie (2005). Her portrayal of Alice, a circus trapeze artist in the early 1900s, was the perfect combination of Izabella's most innate talents. She prepared for this role with a rigorous three-month training schedule on both the flying and static trapeze. Utilizing her dance and trapeze skills, along with rapidly learned tightrope walking (which given her skills, wasn't that difficult), she secured a part time role of Raia, a member of the "Circus of Crime" circus troop in the 2011 NBC series The Cape    (2011).She loves learning new languages, and is learning to speak Italian. She is already fluent in Polish, English and     French.
