I started as Program Coordinator for the Winona Main Street Program in January 2017. In my work, I gets to spend every day in Downtown Winona working on events, development, promotion, beautification efforts and business growth. Prior to my work at the Main Street Program, I was the Director of Marketing and Audience Services for Great River Shakespeare Festival, during which time I was an active volunteer for the Winona Main Street program, and worked as the Director of Communication and Programming at the Decorah Iowa Chamber of Commerce before coming to Winona.
