The Not So Obvious
Cedra proudly practices Nichiren Daishonin Buddhism, and is considered a "Fortune Baby," meaning she was born into the religion. She is a very active member of the Soka Gakkai International, commonly known as SGI.
Cedra also has a weakness for shoes! The term "shoe-a-holic" was coined for her, as she's the proud owner of nearly 300 pairs of shoes!
Cedra's love for her four-legged son, Milo is unmatched! She even bought him a bed to match hers exactly!
Outside of work, you can find Cedra snapping pictures and videos--of herself and others--nonstop. While Cedra is not a fan of insects, she does enjoy spending plenty of time outdoors.
