Since joining the team in 2015, she has launched a dozen cultural programs, presented thousands of performing & visual artists on the Dumbo’s public & projected stages (many of them Dumbonians!), helped install dozens of public artworks, built the #DUMBOVIP program, parachuted toy elephants onto Washington Street, held a million conversations with small businesses, created dozens of gift guides, sent more eblasts than she can count, and told the countless stories of Dumbo’s businesses, artists, companies and more on social media.
