Meet Our New Development Manager!
- Tell us about yourself! Who are you? Where are you from?
I grew up in Arkansas and moved to Seattle almost 10 years ago. My first taste of the stage was at 12 years old when I was an ensemble member of the local kids stage production of “Hello, Dolly!” I’ve been a theater nerd since then, though I gave up the spotlight (hah!) after college.
Right now, I am my improviser husband’s biggest groupie, dedicated pet parent to a dog and cat, and a sucker for any opportunity to do karaoke.
- What do you do at TPS?
I’m the Development Manager. That means I’m concerned with raising money to help expand the reach of TPS’ work, but I’m also always thinking about how to build relationships and connect patrons and professionals in the arts.
- What are you most excited about in your new position here?
I am already such a huge fan and supporter of a wide range of theatre-makers, and I am excited that being on the TPS team gives me an opportunity to support them in a new and deeper way.
- What do you like about the Seattle theatre community?
I feel like there is truly something for everyone out there. I never get bored of what’s available, from beloved musicals to bold and challenging experiences.
- Anything else you want to say to our membership?
I can’t wait to get to know you better! Let’s hang out at the next TPS Tuesday! 🙂
