Staff Picks: Thanksgiving Edition
It’s that time of year when many of us stop to take stock of our lives and express our gratitude. We asked ATC’s staff what they were grateful for this year, and here’s what they said!
“I’m thankful for my husband and two adult children, as well as my ATC family.” – Debbie Archuleta, Accounting Associate
“I’m thankful for life’s adventures.” – Chris Gerling, Associate Production Manager
“I am very thankful for my family! I have two energetic, smart, funny, and wonderful kids who make me smile and laugh every day. I appreciate my dedicated husband, who is the best father I could imagine!” – Robyn Lambert, Associate Managing Director
“I’m thankful for my incredible family, my ridiculous little cat, and the tottering pile of wonderful plays on my desk!” – Katherine Monberg, Literary Associate
“I am thankful for my two beautiful daughters, Bryghton (8) and Brynnleigh (8 months) and my wonderful, loving partner, Aaron. I am also thankful for wonderful friends, family, coffee, popcorn, wine, and chocolate because they can make even the worst days better.” – Bryanna Patrick, Learning & Education Associate
“I am thankful for my family that supports me in whatever endeavors I take on. Even when I move across the country, they are still only a phone call away.” – Kat Seaton, Lighting & Projections Supervisor
“This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for the opportunity to see my extended family in Illinois. My fiancé only gets to see his family in Chicago and Antioch once or twice every few years. Seeing his face when he is able to share stories and time with them is truly magical.” – Ashley Simon, Company Manager
“I am thankful for being a part of a fabulous theatre company, working at a beautiful venue, being able to associate with a artistic, dedicated, mashed up, creative group of crazies that give it all, every day and never question why because the answer is on stage opening night. I know I have a lack of talent, but by association, I get to feel like a part of something grand. Finally, I am thankful for those who have been so generous with their support because without them the gift of live theatre would not exist.” – Carrie Toth, Director of Finance & Administration
“I’m thankful for my family and friends, my boyfriend, and our two adorable cats. I’m thankful for every day I feel healthy and safe. And I’m thankful that one day, there will be new episodes of Twin Peaks and Gilmore Girls.” – Erin Treat, Online Engagement Coordinator
“This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for the unconditional love of my two dogs, Flash and Ollie.” – Cynthia Wasco, Annual Fund Manager
“I am thankful to be working in the arts with talented and supportive professionals. I am thankful for my dog because he always cheers me up. I am thankful for the mostly beautiful Arizona weather. Mostly, I am thankful for my friends and family who are always there for me in in good times and bad.” – Luke Young, Learning & Education Manager
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from everyone at ATC!
