In addition to her own projects, Juan has worked as a script supervisor for over a decade on many award-winning independent films. Her credits include BEASTS OF NO NATION, Lynne Ramsay’s YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE, and Silas Howard’s A KID LIKE JAKE. Juan is one of the founding members of Asian Women in the Arts (AWA).
