Community Engagement Coordinator
Start date: June 2011
What is your background?
I graduated in 2006 from Capital University in Columbus, OH with degrees in Communication and Theatre. After college, I was thrilled to serve as the Marketing Apprentice and Group Sales Coordinator for the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia, PA. I then found myself back in Cleveland where I spent 4 years as the Marketing Associate and Office Manager, handling social media, marketing, and the box office, for Near West Theatre.
Do you have any pets currently?
I have two rescue pups - Henry, a Beagle mix, and Cosmo Kramer, a Rottweiler mix.
What is your favorite pet-related memory?
The very first night we brought Henry home. Neither my husband nor I had ever had a pet before. We were totally overwhelmed and amazed by the destruction (chewed up toys, housetraining accidents, etc.) that this adorable puppy could cause!
What’s your favorite thing about Embrace?
I love the sense of comradery within the staff. This isn't just a place you come to work everyday. For so many of us, this is a labor of love (and, very often, laughter!).
What is your favorite quote?
"It's not who we are inside, but what we do that defines us..." - Batman Begins
Anything else we should know about you?
I spend much of my free time as a foster parent and Board Secretary for Secondhand Mutts Dog Rescue in Cleveland, OH and as a volunteer at Near West Theatre. I love travel, Mexican food, and a good book. My husband, Chris, and I will be expanding our family to include a little two-legged member in January 2014!
