I’m delighted to join the Educational Theatre Association as Chapter Relations Director. For 20 years, I’ve been dedicated to strengthening the value of associations to their stakeholders. I’ve launched profitable business lines, grown membership, increased engagement, helped craft legislation, developed events, and more. I am deeply committed to ensuring arts education is accessible to every child and spent years working on STEAM issues. I believe the arts are an essential part of a child’s education, and I’m honored to work with chapter directors from around the country and the world to help strengthen their programs and give more children the opportunity to experience theatre. I have a degree in business administration from Youngstown State University and recently completed professional development at University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business. My husband Al and I are parents to two fur babies, Jake and Tanzi.
