For 25 years Elmwood has been nurturing my lifelong love of the theater. Although, in my high school and college years being on the stage was a priority, it has been deeply satisfying to still be part of the creative process as an Elmwood producer, a member of backstage support staff and a former coordinator of lobby displays. I am honored to once again be on the Board, having served previously for the last two years and from 200-2007. It was during my earlier term, with a vision to assuring the theater’s successful future, that renovation and fundraising plans were initiated, as well as fiscal and operational improvements. The fruits of those labors are evident.
Then, and now, I believe my skills and experiences are assets in supporting the Board’s realization of its goals for Elmwood: I am aware of the community’s needs having worked for the Nyack School District as Communications Director/District Clerk for 28 years and having graduated from the County’s Leadership Rockland organization. Also, since I was President of my local and state professional organizations, and past and present member of several other non-profit county Boards, I am familiar with the rewards of collaboration and compromise. I am excited to once again be part of translating the theater’s dreams into reality.”
