Her connection with fictional heroes drove her to the medical field; but after her shift, she trades her sea legs for fins and dives into working on her costumes. Her specialties include: prop-making and foamsmithing, with an ongoing commitment towards sustainable builds crafted from recycled materials such as water bottles, PVC, cans, packaging materials, and upcycled textiles.
