"She is the consummate costume designer. A director's dream, she brings her own unique vision to every project and at the same time is deeply collaborative. Her attention to detail is unparalleled. She has been known to stand backstage during a dress rehearsal, sewing costume pieces onto actors as they walk onstage."
— Morris Panych, director and playwright
