I have been a member of ATD since 2008 and a member of the local chapter for 5+ years, although not continuously.
Professionally, I work for Landmark Theatres as their Director of Training. This is a one person department which I have held for the last decade, although I have worked for Landmark for 30 years total.
ATD-LA volunteer role/position:
I volunteer as the chair for the Westside GIG, and I have volunteered in this capacity since the beginning of 2018, taking it over from Rachel Karu who did it for more than a decade.
Why do you volunteer for ATD-LA?
I volunteer because I need the community. Being a one person department and not having a budget for developing myself, I rely on the networking and friendships I have made along the way through this organization to keep me grounded and inspired.
Favorite ATD-LA memory:
It would be hard to pick one memory. I enjoy the chapter meetings and being inspired by listening to the stories of others the most.
