I went to undergrad at UT, and then obtained my MFA from Brooklyn College.
Theater with a minor in business and then performing arts management in graduate school.
I currently split my time between Memphis and NYC, and I negotiate and run Broadway and arts partnerships for American Express across the United States.
My former boss and mentor at Disney had joined the producing team for the show and asked me to come on board. Unsolicited advice: when good mentors say jump, just do it.
I’m negotiating partnerships for new Broadway shows that are arriving on The Great White Way this spring as well as working on the Hamilton national tour.
Not necessarily, but there were definitely indicators when I look back at my time at St. George’s (my star turn as the Old Lady in the first grade play). But as most of my teachers would remember, I was pretty dead set on becoming an astronaut at that time.
St. George’s believes that intellect and imagination should be nurtured, that curiosity is a character trait to be encouraged. St. George's showed me that we live in a big world, with so many possibilities to explore. Instilling that mindset, confidence, and curiosity has made me the person that I am today.
Mrs. Hamilton and Mrs. Kelsey! While she didn’t teach me at St. George's, Mrs. Lorraine Cotten (St. George's current Director of Theater Arts) was my favorite teacher in high school. Go audition for the spring play!
Not my favorite, but potentially the most memorable: when we went overnight caving at Cumberland Caverns. I mean, how many of your non-SGIS friends went spelunking in elementary school?
There are jobs and adventures out there you haven’t even heard about yet. Continue to face the world with big-hearted curiosity and the most amazing opportunities will present themselves to you. And when they do, jump.
