Throughout the initial years of her career, Rebecca has enjoyed gaining experience within a wide range of performance types. Her degree in costume provided her with an excellent knowledge of sewing, mending and alteration. She has then developed this to working within a range of different perfomance types and taking on some small scale design roles. This broad range of experience allows her to take a design from conception to completion with confidence. Continuing forward, Rebecca hopes to remain focused on broadening her skillset and solidifying her experience. With a hard working and postitve attitude she is an excellent addition to any team.
