In his term as STO, he hopes to bring troupes together by serving their respective wants and needs.

While she adores theatre, she is also a huge advocate of the color pink, Insulin, Buzzfeed quizzes, the Muppets, John Mulaney, and exclamation points (!). When she is not at the Performing Arts Center, you can find her at an Ulta, a coffee shop, or a show making new friends – and she’d love for you to be one of them!
