After being inducted into ITS in high school, I received my BFA in Theatre from the University of Kentucky. During my senior year of college, I developed a love for theatre education and secured a teaching artist position at the Lexington Children's Theatre the summer after graduation. From there, I went on to establish a theatre education program at the Children's Theatre of Mason and was hired at EdTA in 2006. I worked in the Membership Department until 2013 when I became the Community Engagement Manager. In this position, I manage the online Theatre Education Community, JumpStart Theatre, and our Awards, Grants and Scholarship program.
