Hailing all the way from the great state of Texas Brittney Dubose, a marketing professional with a love for the performing arts, joined our staff as the Marketing and Communications Manager. We sat down with her to learn about her upbringing in the arts, her interest in working for AHCMC, and more.
AHCMC: So, tell us about yourself.
AHCMC: What led you to the arts field?
Brittney: I have been involved in the arts my entire life. I began dancing at the age of four and acting around the age of eight. Growing up, my parents owned a fine arts studio and so my childhood was filled with classes, rehearsals, and performances. I loved every bit of it! I believe I was fortunate to have been exposed to many different art forms, cultures, ideas, values, etc. from a young age. After college, I began my career in arts administration as a teaching artist and a programs specialist. I quickly realized how much I enjoyed seeing how the arts positively impacted the lives of my students, and I wanted the opportunity to share these stories with anyone and everyone. Thus, my career focus shifted from programmatic to communications.
AHCMC: Do you still perform?
Brittney: Yes, but more acting than dancing. I am very passionate about storytelling and am excited about what opportunities may come my way in the DMV.
AHCMC: What interested you to come work for AHCMC?
Brittney: Providing artists with resources that support and empower them to achieve their vision is very important to me as a marketer and an artist. AHCMC provides these kinds of innovative services, and this is my opportunity to work with an organization dedicated to implementing creative strategies that ensure the arts remain a vital part of their community.
AHCMC: What are you most looking forward to as the Marketing & Communications Manager?
