Service Description

I relocated to Southern California from Michigan 4 years ago, where I was the Office Manager for two years at a vibrant, urban performing arts center. I did everything from answering phones, booking the facility, creating contracts and invoices, to giving tours, marketing, sending out news releases and maintaining the online Event webpage. I even set up and tore down events and cleaned the bathrooms when needed! I type 84 wpm, am a great problem-solver and go-getter.

I am also in the entertainment business ¿ a performer ¿ but have worked in every aspect of theatre, so understand the nature of this business, and excel at most everything I do. As a working performer, I am responsible for all of my own promotional materials, bookings, social media, press, contracts and paper work.

I also have 25 years¿ experience doing special event, public relations, fundraising and marketing for nonprofit organizations; and 10 years¿ of teaching at the University level, so I¿m very familiar with college campuses!

What makes me a unique and sought-after employee is that I love the challenge of daily variety and multi-tasking, and am innovative and creative in my approach to any position I have. I need no hand-holding and am highly capable of doing just about anything I set my mind to (once given the parameters/instruction). I¿m seeking flexible part-time work to supplement my income as a performer and Audiobook Director.
