  • Contact me if you wish to invite Dallas Theater Center into your grant making cycle.
  • My favorite time away from work includes reading a book and writing poetry. Yes... I'm a happy introvert!
  • HAIR was my favorite Dallas Theater Center production, because the transformation of the Potter Rose Performance Hall welcomed everyone into the tribe of Love and Peace!

  • Contact me if you need information about …. how we use Tessitura software within our department, connecting with a member of our development team and are not quite sure where to start, and any curiosities about all the happenings at Dallas Theater Center!
  • Favorite Dallas Theater Center production & why… My two favs are Real Women Have Curves and In the Heights!
    • Real Women Have Curves: It was the profound similarities I recognized between my personal experiences and the play, the amazing talented cast and crew, and because it was hilarious!
    • In the Heights: Because of the positive and captivating energy that could be felt throughout the house during each performance!
  • Hidden talent, skill or superpower… dog whisper!
