Walton Arts Center/Walmart AMP


Over a 25-year career, I have led the effort to build a $145 Million performing arts complex with multiple venues, managed over 200 employees and the operations of a 75-year old historic theatre, and taught and directed arts education programs on the college and community level.

Since gaining my MFA in Theatre Management/Arts Administration, I have been responsible for multimillion-dollar budgets and led fundraising efforts that brought in tens of millions of dollars.

I have extensive experience in non-profit operations including legal issues in arts administration, principles and practices in for profit and non-profit arts institutions, marketing, promotions, board relations, labor and employee relations, fundraising, and financial management. I have established long-term strategic plans for several non-profits.
