This led to the invention of the Shower Toga. In 2019, she took the product on to Shark Tank, where she became business partners with Mark Cuban and Alli Webb. Kressa was one of eight people to be chosen to be in the Rakuten Everyday Spartans documentary, and she was the first recipient to be chosen for the Spartan Spirit Award.
