A Familiar Face Around the Playhouse: Carolanna Hirt, Programs Coordinator

You may have noticed a not-so-new face hanging out around the playhouse during programs. We are so excited to announce that Carolanna has joined our team as our new Program Coordinator!  Carolanna has been a consistent volunteer for years here at the playhouse and has already stepped into her new role seamlessly.

Carolanna grew up in the Franklin area and started volunteering with GiGi’s when she was in high school. She continued to serve as a volunteer for multiple programs over the years and even led some online programs while she studied at the University of Tennessee.  Her favorite programs to lead are Little Sports and GiGiFit because it allows participants to engage in exercise and healthy habits! 

Since graduating from UT with her degree in Kinesiology and moving back to the Franklin area, she has married her high school sweetheart. In her spare time she enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband Anderson, and their goldendoodle Cash. Carolanna has always enjoyed working with her friends at GiGi’s and is so excited to take on the role as the new Program Coordinator!

We are looking forward to seeing what Carolanna can bring to our programs and know she will do so much for our participants with Down syndrome!
