Huggins first came to Interscope's attention more than a decade ago when she was working as a film editor on one of the company's productions. Her credits included John Waters' classics Hairspray; Crybaby; Serial Mom; and Academy-Award-winning director Michael Cimino's The Sicilian and Desperate Hours. Interscope was in search of executives with a non-traditional background to bring a fresh perspective to the development and production process and offered Huggins a position as in-house producer.
At Interscope, Huggins produced What Dreams May Come, starring Robin Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr., which earned an Oscar for its groundbreaking visual effects; Boys, starring Winona Ryder; and the critically acclaimed Gridlock'd, starring Tupac Shakur and Tim Roth.
In 2004 Imagine Entertainment hired Huggins as Senior Vice President of Motion Pictures where she currently is in post-production on Flightplan, Disney's airborne thriller starring Jodi Foster and directed by Robert Schwentke.
Huggins graduated Hampshire College with a dual degree in Anthropology and Documentary Film. She spent a year in Japan and China, researching her thesis and teaching at Kobe College.
