What attracted you to Theatre B?: I am interested in working in the non-profit sector, and I’ve always had a passion for the arts. Theatre B has wonderful values and seemed like a unique place to gain experience and obtain a deeper understanding of both marketing and the behind-the-scenes workings of a theatre.
What are you most excited to experience during your internship?: I am most excited to be a part of such a thought-provoking company. I’m excited to gain the marketing skills that can be applied to many different aspects of life.
Activities outside of Theatre B: Job at the Olson Desk at Concordia College, Echo Band, Concordia Women’s Lacrosse, Concordia On-Air, PR club, KORD radio
Hobbies: Flute, lacrosse, watching baseball, hanging with my homies (especially Amber Morgan, she’s pretty cool).
A unique characteristic of yourself: I love to laugh, and I can find humor in just about any situation.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 5 years, I hope to be working for a non-profit in the Minneapolis area. I’d love to have a house or something, but with a non-profit’s salary, who knows? I just hope to be making a difference in peoples’ lives. Oh, and I will most definitely own an adorable dog.
