Artist Residencies

John Michael Kohler Center for the Arts, Connecting Communities Residency, 2008

Arts Administration

Director of Education and Community Outreach

Center for the Arts Evergreen, 2011

Developed a strong education program for CAE; designed class and camp schedules; solicited and contracted teachers and produced the class schedule; and was responsible for the maintenance of classrooms, studios and supplies. I had the responsibility of assisting with both of CAE's two major arts festivals, Summerfest and Winterfest. This job required computer skills, attention to detail and, a good knowledge of art educational practices and of art materials and mediums. In this position I was required to be a self-starter and possess excellent organizational, communication, and people skills.
