At A Wish Come True our coworkers and our customers feel like family. So we thought it was time for you to get to know our family.

Meet Shyla! She is a youth minister at her church, goofy song-creator and loves to create beauty all around her.

Q: What’s your job title? describe what you do. 

A: Senior Pattern Maker. I turn our designs on paper into physical garments and make sure they fit perfectly.


Q: What’d the most fun part of your job/day?

A: When the designers see their costume and LOVES it.


Q: Do you have a fun or funny memory from working at ‘Wish’?

A: Anytime we put the costumes on ourselves, over our clothes and act silly. Tutus look great on the head! And extra small child shorts look hilarious over jeans.


Q: Did you dance as a kid? Do you still dance?

A: I could not afford to, but I absolutely love dance. I am often the first one on the dance floor. In another life I think I will be a choreographer.


Q: What did you want to be when you grew up?

A: In high school I decided to be a math teacher since I was always the one helping my classmates. But I did have a hidden love for evening wear and sewing.


Q: Where and for what did you go to school for? 

A: Fashion Design at the Art Institute of Philadelphia, after I realized mathematics was not my calling.


Q: Did you have a different job before ‘Wish’? 

A: This is my first real job out of college (almost 10 years ago!). But I did get to work as an intern for Motherhood Maternity and as a sales consultant at David’s Bridal.


Q: What are a few of your favorite things?

A: Movies, fresh baked cookies, naps and friends.


Q: What’s your spirit animal?

A: A Giraffe. I do have a naturally long neck.


Q: Who are your favorite artists and favorite songs? 

A: I love Gwen Stefani – No Doubt’s “Different People” is a favorite. And Jason Mraz “I Won’t Give Up” is a life mantra.
