Cindy has long brown hair with long bangs framing her face. She wears glasses, trapezoidal in shape and mounted in thick dark frames. She usually looks pleasant and cheerful. She is seen wearing an over-sized maroon collared button-down shirt, khakis, and brown loafers.
An extremely peculiar thing about Cindy is that she was in the same year as Quinn Morgendorffer but somehow graduated in Is It College Yet? with Daria's year. It's not kwnon how she managed this: she was still in Quinn's class in S5's Lucky Strike and is unlikely to have been moved up a year that fast...
Appearances by Cindy show she is a big school sports fan, appearing to watch various Lawndale Lions games (Kevin's fumble in "The F Word" had her grabbing her head, aghast) and also the Lawndale High Track Team. She seems to be a fan of Z93's Mental in the Morning as well, cheering them on in "Jake of Hearts". She follows the school fashion trends, donning all-black like Quinn in "Quinn the Brain" and wearing the school colours in The Lost Girls, and went to the dance party in "Daria Dance Party" (where she was seen dancing with a boy she'd met). She was invited to the Fashion Club's 'Fashion Don't's' party and came in full costume in Monster; however, she's almost the only student to ignore Sandi and Quinn's big spat over grades in Lucky Strike.
Cindy likes to visit The Zon too, in Ill and Pierce Me; both times are when Mystik Spiral was performing, so she might be a fan. She also volunteered in the same soup kitchen as Jodie Landon in Is It Fall Yet?
Despite her conformity and mainstream interests, Cindy is seen multiple times with background goth girl "Kristen": "The Lost Girls" (hanging), "Daria Dance Party" (at the dance together), "Daria!" (sitting together), "I Loathe a Parade" (at the parade). The two appear to be friends. Kristen also graduated eerily early...
We don't know her academic ability, though she looked disappointed with her marks from temp-teacher Daria in Lucky Strike.
