As [a] ticketing and box office coordinator, I’m doing a lot with the entertainment industry, but I’m also managing people and working with the community. A lot of those things came from what I learned in my coursework in the Arts Administration Program. I’m really grateful that everything I learned could be applied in many different fields and trajectories.”
