Executive Director  |  Theatre Cedar Rapids
AGE: 33

What would most people be surprised to learn about you?

I love instructional illustrations. I read the safety cards in airplanes cover to cover. I’m definitely the person to ask if you’re not sure about the location of your nearest exit.

What’s the biggest issue facing the Corridor, and why?

The Corridor is challenged with continuing and sustaining its cultural growth to ensure population retention. We are collectively charged with having cultural opportunities that both appeal to our community and push us forward.

If you had $1 million to give, what causes would you support?

I would specifically support the endowment funds of nonprofit performing arts and culture organizations, including TCR of course! Endowment support is an essential key to flourishing programs and sustaining operations.

What are your passions outside of the workplace?

We are a theater-centric household, from TCR to my husband Cavan’s theatre company, Mirrorbox. When we are not busy producing and attending our own shows, we love to travel. When we are home, our free time is joyfully full with friends and family.

What should people know about your generation in the workplace?

No generation is identical across all individuals, but I have found my millennial colleagues in leadership roles to be a highly communicative group driven by mission and impact. Regardless of the generation, I am drawn to those who leave no stone unturned when driving for results and growth.
