learned to sew at age 12. Her career as a "volunteer" costumer began about five years ago. Her costuming credits include Verona School productions of Oklahoma, Dames at Sea, and Damn Yankees. In Montclair, she created costumes for Book of Seasons (First Night production) and Cheaper by the Dozen and How to Succeed... at the Playhouse. She thanks her husband Geoff for never caring if the house is clean, her daughter Leah for pitching in with the boring sewing tasks, and Angela for all her invaluable help.
