Tell us your craziest or funniest behind-the-scenes event story: Once when I was 9 months pregnant I had to get into a fountain to get the flowers placed for an event. The water was extreamly cold so I had to wear Hip Waiters: Hip Waiters pulled up over a Big 9 month Belly is very sexy!

Favorite Syzygy event so far: I loved the event we did in the Bahamas for the grand opening of their new stadium. Outside in the sunshine always makes me happy. We did a card stunt at the stadium and the organizers said the people would never do it. ( A card stunt is where you give each person a big card and you have them hold them up with a message or colors or what every you want. We did Bahamian flags) The people not only did the stunt they loved it and did the wave and held the cards up long after they could have put them down.
