She is the Co-Director and Curator of Bunker 2 Contemporary Art Container, an alternative exhibition space based out of a repurposed shipping container. Benedict holds an Honors B.F.A in Digital Media studies from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. She is on the Advisory and Programming Committee at Critical Distance Centre for Curators and has been invited to speak and/or moderate on multiple panels. She has published three publications and in 2016 was the Edition Art Book Fair Coordinator. In addition to working at many artist-run centres, including Studio XX and 8 Eleven, for the past three years Benedict has been employed at Division Gallery, Toronto, where she formally held the position of Gallery Manager.

Her practice explores a collapse of traditional environments and relationships, prompting the viewer to reconsider the power dynamics at play in our online and physical spaces.
