Her music has been performed internationally at venues including St Paul’s Cathedral and the Sistine Chapel, and is regularly broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM and BBC Radio Scotland.

Kerensa was winner of the National Centre for Early Music Young Composers Award 2014 and is a member of the TheoArtistry Composers scheme at St Andrews' Institute for Theology and The Arts and the ‘Illuminate’ women’s music project.
