Who has had the greatest influence on you? My sister, Lesley. She’s brilliant and logical. She’s known what she wanted to do with her life since a career day in middle school and she simply did it. She challenged me to figure out what I want and to move forward with my life when I was feeling sorry for myself.
Why did you pursue a career in marketing and public relations? I like to talk, write, listen and be nice to people. I figured if I could do that for an organization that I admire and respect, then I would never dread going to work and I would never have to lie.
What drew you to Playhouse on the Square? I am excited about the growth I have seen at Playhouse on the Square. Our arts community has such amazing talent that we could rival other cities that are a draw in terms of arts and culture. That is possible here and I want to be part of the movement that makes that happen.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments? So far, getting this job. The first job in your field is always the hardest to get. This one combines all of my interests. I really lucked out. I couldn’t ask for a better fit.
What do you most enjoy about your work? Theaters are wonderful places to work and theater people are some of the most welcoming, passionate and genuine people you’ll ever meet. It is exciting to be surrounded by that creative energy, and I get to meet new people every day.
