Arts Management & Performance

"Elizabeth's leadership completely revolutionized ONMC. Her ability to collaborate and communicate with me, the board of directors, the members, and the general public dramatically improved both our internal organization and our external branding. She remains positive, prompt and professional in negotiations, meeting tight deadlines and dealing with any problems that arise. She would be an asset to any organization."
Rebecca Danard, DMA
Artistic Director
