Bio

I am interested in arts management. Experience includes artist management and technical aspects of production work in a theater/venue. As a graduate of a fine arts university, I have a well-rounded education, personality, and work ethic that allow me to adapt to any situation. Helping accomplish the tasks and goals of a fine arts institution allows me to grow in knowledge of the industry and fulfills my passion for creation.

I grew up in midtown Omaha, Nebraska. I went to Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart for high school where I participated in choir competitions, musicals, stage managing plays, and competing in soccer. I currently sing in the St. Cecilia Cathedral choir and have for 17 years. I moved to St. Joseph, Minnesota to earn my Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of St. Benedict/St. John's University in English and a minor in vocal music performance. I am a traveler and an adventurer. I traveled to Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic with a choir in 2010. I also lived and studied abroad in Greece and Rome for four months in the fall of 2012. I traveled to London summer 2015 for a live performance of Hamlet at the Barbican Theatre starring Benedict Cumberbatch. My choir was invited to sing at the Vatican for the celebration of the closing mass for the Jubilee Year of Mercy in November 2016. I love watching all sorts of movies and at some point would love to see myself in the industry. I have a passion for cooking and baking. I have experience in event planning and coordination and would love to dive into that too.
