My love of theatre began when I was a techie in High School. I worked my way through college and graduated as an Assistant Manager with Fifth Third Bank of Northwest Ohio. Through odd circumstances and chance I began my career as an association executive in 1991 with the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute. In 1998 a friend told me about the opportunity at EdTA. In my interview we talked about the many ways participating in and watching live theatre had enriched my life and made me a better person. I was blessed enough to be hired and I have the best, most rewarding career I could imagine. I can't name anything else I'd rather be doing.
