MS arts administration ’15

Executive director, Intercultural Journeys

My Greatest Accomplishment: Leading Intercultural Journeys through a time of major programmatic, audience, funding and board growth. Intercultural Journeys is a small nonprofit dedicated to using performances to foster connection and dialogue among people who might otherwise be in conflict.

How Drexel Helped: My master’s degree was the perfect mix of practical experience, in-depth learning and forging deep connections to the arts community. I would not be thriving in my current job without the training from the arts administration program and mentorship from the phenomenal professors and staff.

Where I’ll Be in Five Years: Philadelphia! I love this city and its vibrant arts and culture landscape, and I plan to be here and be an active part of the creative community.

“If I live to be 100, the change I’d most like to see in the world is…
I have to dream big and answer in three parts: An education system that works for every child, a complete reversal of the climate crisis, and a recognition that art and creativity are irreplaceable components of our lives.”
