Fischer talked about her career aspirations in an April 2005 interview with the         
student newspaper, The Index, at Truman State University, her alma mater:               
Honestly it would be great to get to play Pam for a long, long time ... ," she         
said. "I don't have real big aspirations to be a movie star. I would love to be         
on a long-running hit TV show. You end up playing a defining role.                     
In a more recent interview with MySpace, Fischer commented on her desire to             
focus on comedic roles:                                                                 
I’m not sure I want to do a straight drama. I like finding the comedy in people       
and situations and characters. But I am interested in doing something heavier. I’ve   
been doing a lot of light comedy. I mean, there are so many different kinds of         
comedy. Once I finish exploring all of that, maybe I’ll move to drama.
