Company Experience Director
Valerie is a theatre kid who works in digital marketing & analytics. After spending most of her adolescence performing, she has spent the last 14 years immersed in data and spreadsheets, working for ad agencies and in-house marketing teams. For the last nine years she has directed these skill sets toward helping non-profit theatres in the Kansas City area, on boards and through volunteer work.
She is passionate about non-profits and the arts and is thrilled to help bring the Living Ticket model to life. The power of human connection through story should never be cost-prohibitive.
She was born and raised in the KC metro and obtained her BA in English Literature at the University of Missouri - Columbia. In addition to Forge Repertory Theatre, she sits on the Volunteer Marketing Board for Rose Brooks. Any time she has left is spent with family and friends, her DP - the talented local actor/educator Jordan Fox, his son Jude, and their dog Oscar, named for Oscar Madison of the Odd Couple.
She encourages you to support the arts, adopt your pets from a local shelter, and spread the word about the resources available to victims of domestic violence.
