Clearwater, FL Cathy Straka had the career of her dreams, traveling around the world filming documentaries for the Pentagon and then working for CBS and NBC, when she contracted a parasite that attacked her heart. At only 45, she would need an emergency heart transplant, and the career of her dreams was over.

But Cathy’s story doesn’t end there. While working at a jewelry store, happy but unfulfilled, a friend asked if she could design a product to help cyclists change out of their wet bicycle shorts in public.

And so Cathy began designing. After five redesigns, her friend declared, "This is great. You have it dialed in exactly the way we want this. We're good to go."

Cathy applied for a patent, located a manufacturing company that would produce her product, and Easy Change Sport was born.

Easy Change Sport offers a personal, portable clothing changing station: a single garment to cover you while changing out of your bicycle shorts, board shorts or wet bathing suit.

“It's a very simple design,” says Cathy. “If you're a woman at the beach, you can pull it up. If you're a sports enthusiast like a bicyclist or surfer, you can wear it down around your waist, slip everything on and off underneath and you're covered.”

Soon, Cathy was showing up at bicycle rallies, triathlons, marathons, to introduce her product, but when she discovered Amazon, she realized her new dream career was just getting started.
