I am the Director for the Burton Coliseum Complex, an entertainment destination in Lake Charles, LA, consisting of a 8,500 seat coliseum, an outdoor arena, and an event barn. The Burton is owned and operated by the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury (the area's local governing authority.) Come visit the complex; I'd be happy to give you a tour.
I center my life around the arts and cultural world, and am proud to live in a state which exudes an abundance of creative talent in communities throughout each region. I have multiple years experience working with event services, government agencies, and the Arts.
Specialties: Venue Management, leadership, creative thinking, and always finding a way to say "yes" before I have to say "no." Other specialties include: Marketing/PR, branding, effective communications-internal and external, research and information gathering, public speaking, time management "knowing how government works," and an optimistic approach with all endeavors and initiatives - The glass is ALWAYS half-full!
