I worked a counselor and supervisor at a theatre camp for eight years, and have taught classes in scene study, monologue work, audition technique, improvisation, and music, as well as developing a leadership training curriculum for older campers. Additionally, I have written, directed, and stage managed many plays for children of all ages, and have worked in multiple theatre education positions. I would love to continue to work in theatre education and TYA in the future. My resume and references are available upon request.
I have spent many years in Jewish Education, and currently work at West End Synagogue as the Director Of Jewish Family Life & Learning Programs and Operations, where I am responsible for creating and implementing unique, educational programming for all students, ranging from toddlers to teens.

Graphic Design/Photo Editing
Why did my middle school art teacher spend weeks honing the Photoshop skills of 12-year-olds? I'm not sure. But I'm glad to have learned early, and to have what is now 10 years of Photoshop experience. I have designed posters, logos, and other graphics for many theatrical productions, as well as other events. I have retouched headshots and other photos, and have helped to supervise and edit the work of others. I would be thrilled to do any freelance design/editing work. My design portfolio is available upon request.
I minored in English so I could read more books, but I'm not entirely sure that I'll find a marketable career in it. I just want to read novels and plays and discuss them...is there such a thing as a professional book club member? Let me know.
