She plays Penny, a waitress that is trying to make an acting career happen for her. She interacts with the brainiacs across the hall from her. This program started in 2007 and it is still going strong.

Those that have wanted the show from the start have seen quite a change in the character of Penny. Initially, she was always dressed provocatively and seems to be the typical dumb blonde character. As fans responds to her but with criticms her clothing improved and so did the dialogue for her character.
