My grandmother was a fan of hats and she passed the love onto me, as well as her talent for making them.
I grew up in my Grandmother's Bridal Shop making specials for her and her friends who also owned shops. I worked in the bridal market designing and making headpieces and also was the costume designer for the Village People and did some work for the Richey Family. I now wear hats as part of my costumes as a Peabody dancer as a Ballroom and Latin-American Professional. I teach Ballroom, Latin-American and Harvest Moon Ball Dance Peabody and Argentine Tango.
