I'm a dynamic leader with over 20 years of operations and customer service experience in museums, theme parks, zoos, and international non-profit organizations. Now I'm trying to build on my experience and transition into the creative side of the industry through the pursuit of a Certificate in Themed Entertainment Design at IUPUI in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Creative Thinker. Dynamic Leader.
My interest in themed entertainment started when I was 15 years old during a visit to Walt Disney World. I started my college career as an engineering student in hopes of working with the famed Walt Disney Imagineering someday. Engineering didn't turn out to be my forte, so I changed gears and went into tourism and hospitality management. I've worked in the attractions industry for over 20 years now in varying levels of supervision, overseeing ride operations, ticketing, guest relations, and membership just to name a few. Now I'm finally circling back to my true passion as I work to make the leap over to the creative side of the business!
