Cindy Pury took Alchemy's 101 class in Spring 2016 to get better at her day job. She thought that was the end of it, but when asked to put an interesting fact on a conference name tag, "Ask me about improv!!" was what popped into her head. She joined the Alchemy Company in 2017 and has been performing regularly ever since. In her day job, Cindy is a professor of psychology at Clemson University, where she studies courage and other areas of positive psychology.
