Meet Jessica Hendricks, Lyric Arts' new Audience Development Manager! She will be overseeing our "front of house" operations including ticket sales, group sales, marketing, and more! We sat down with Jessica for a quick chat in order to get to know her a little better. LA: What do you do in the rest of your life?
JH: I live in good ol' Anoka with my fiance David, and our kitten Boba Fett. You wouldn't know it to talk to me, but I'm an old fashioned Suzy Homemaker at heart, I love messing with crafts, cooking, and baking. Then, there's the not-so-secret obsession with video games, after a stressful day, you'll find me wailing away on my plastic drum set.
LA: What do you enjoy most about working at Lyric Arts thus far?
JH: The people of course! I've never met such a great group who balance hard work with fun and laughter. LA: What is your background?
JH: My undergraduate degree was in Global Studies and International Journalism at Hamline University. After working in the for-profit arena, I decided it wasn't for me, and returned to Hamline and got my Master's Degree in Nonprofit Management in 2009, where my focus was on marketing in nonprofits.
LA: Do you spend time at Lyric Arts in any other capacity?
JH: I began volunteering at Lyric Arts in 2009, and sat on the Publicity Committee, helping Joanna get the word out about all the wonderful productions.
LA: Anything else you’d like to touch on.
JH: I'm super excited about being a part of the team here at Lyric Arts!
Welcome, Jessica! Lyric Arts is thrilled to have to you!
