Job before joining the Forum?
I’ve been very fortunate to have been able to work at live entertainment companies such as Live Nation, Madison Square Garden Company and Nederlander Concerts. Fun Fact: I’ve worked at the Forum twice! My first time was 2007 – 2010.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
Building lasting relationships – The relationships I’ve made will last a lifetime and its fulfilling to work with people you respect in the business. I also have to mention show days! There is nothing more exciting than show days, when all of the hard work comes together.
What advice do you have for women trying to break into the entertainment industry?
Be persistent and set intention. Don’t be afraid to reach out to people you may not know or use your contacts to get your foot in the door.
If you could have dinner with any woman in the world, who would it be and why?
Michelle Obama. The Forum was a stop on her book tour in 2018. There was a joyful excitement on show day that everyone could feel, and I was so moved by the story of her life.
