Hi everyone! I'm running for the Board because I feel I have some unfinished business to complete. Specifically, I'd like to focus on two areas:
Since joining the Players family as a cast member in 2016 during The Clueless Dead, I've happily dedicated my personal life to our community and membership. Players is a shining light in my life and I owe all of my most treasured friendships and memories to the experiences it has given me. With the worst of the pandemic (hopefully) in the rearview mirror, I'm determined, now more than ever, to use my experiences and unique perspective as a previous cast member, production team member, and a two-time board member to help Players come back better than ever — Providing our community with an even safer, more inclusive outlet for creative fulfillment. I can't wait to get back to enjoying responsibility with all of you in 2022!
For your reference:
1. The current long-term goal of Players is to continually improve Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion within our company. Please keep this goal in mind when making your selection of whom you think will best be able to help us achieve it as a member of the Board.
