Mission Creek Festival

Marketing Director

The first local Mission Creek Festival took place in Iowa City, Iowa, in 2006--and since then it has grown into an annual, week-long event featuring 100s of artists, attracting 10,000 fans, inhabiting countless venues and non-traditional art spaces, and creating an undeniable energy that makes Iowa City come alive for both arts enthusiasts as well as casual observers. Mission Creek Festival programming includes concerts, comedic performances, literary readings and events, film screenings, public lectures, food and culture events, and a tech and innovation mini-conference.

New Pioneer Co-op

Member, Board of Directors

The board represents the member-owners in ensuring the long-term success of the Co-op. We are elected to be the voice of our member-owners, and are charged with steering long-term strategy based on the needs, values, and collective opinions of the member-owners--as well as the sustainability and success of the Co-op as a collectively owned business. The day-to-day management of the business is the responsibility of our very competent staff and management, but the board’s function is to articulate a vision that serves Co-op members and staff along with our community, while also making responsible strategic business decisions to maintain and expand upon our financial success.
