A Note from the President…Welcome New Board Members!

One of my most favorite things about GiGi’s Playhouse is the people that I am able to interact with – the volunteers, donors, community members, participants and site coordinators too! I am honored to have accepted the role as President and look forward to gaining an intimate knowledge of all things GiGi’s! As summer is quickly approaching, I wanted to let you know that as seasons change, so has our leadership team. We have new leadership in place and it is with great pleasure that I acquaint you with our new playhouse roles and advocates as follows:

  • Sarah Kearney; VP Community Outreach and Partnering
  • Sarah Call; VP of Marketing and Communications
  • Jennifer Lane; VP of Strategic, Structure and Governance
  • Kate Coulson; VP of PR, Social Media and Advocacy

Something would be amiss if I did not give special thanks to our tenured board members for all that they do for the playhouse.

  • Jennifer Gage; Founding President
  • Erik Merkow; VP of Fundraising
  • Debbie Crain ; VP Financial Management and Legal
  • Jessica Crain; Secretary and Co-Program Coordinator
  • Danica O’Leary; VP of Events
  • Brett Schatzman, Honorary Board Member

As Gigi’s Playhouse Phoenix/Scottsdale, I’m honored to lead this team and will work closely with our founder and President Emeritus, Jennifer Gage. We need to take a moment and thank those who have previously served on the board for their immense service. We’re so grateful for everything they have done and everything they continue to do for the community we love. This talented group of new, as well as tenured members, offers a wonderful array of experiences, interests, and commitment to help chart the future of GiGi’s Playhouse Phoenix/Scottsdale.

Would you like to join our board or be part of a specialty team in one of the areas listed above?  Do you have a special talent or expertise and some extra time on your hands to put towards a wonderful cause? We’d love to have you. There is no mountain we can’t climb together! We have current openings in these roles:

  • Marketing Team
    • Copy writers, communications
    • Graphic designers
  • Social Media
  • Events and Advocacy
  • Volunteers for literacy, math and programs
