  • While home life often does not allow her to volunteer in person as much as she would like, she tries to make up for it by creating and donating as much largess to the Kingdom and her home Barony as she can (i.e. spice mixes, homemade soaps, liquors and syrups, beeswax candles, handmade Slavic temple rings, wire coil hairpins, hand-harvested flower seeds, ragdolls, dehydrated sourdough starter, armor bag deodorizers, finger-loop braid and whipcord, etc.)
  • Was commissioned by Mistress Caterucia Bice da Ghiacceto to sew a blue velvet and silver trimmed rapier cloak for the Defender of the Arts rapier champion for the 2018 Crescent Artisan competition. This cloak was presented to Their Majesties Pansa and Katherine at their coronation in 2021 to be used as regalia for future Defender of the Arts title holders.
  • Prepared several period desserts for The Right Noble Upper Crust Guild luncheon fundraiser at Gyldenholt Anniversary, 2019.
