Social Media Community Manager, Disney Institute

As a Social Media Community Manager with Disney Institute, I share news about our inspirational learning and professional development courses that showcase Disney best practices. Before my current role, I have also worked on the Disney Public Relations, Travel Industry Marketing and Broadcast Marketing teams, where I was involved in many incredible projects such as the production of national TV shows like the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. My Disney career began in 1997 on the Disney College Program as an Attractions Host at Disney’s Hollywood Studios where I led walking tours through the production soundstages, giving guests a behind-the-scenes look at how movies were made. As a girl who grew up in a small town in Kansas, I never had the opportunity to visit a Disney Park as a child. But, just like Walt Disney once said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” And, so I did!
