I love meeting entrepreneurs across the Chicagoland area that have a passion for the arts. When I first started volunteering/joined the On BOARD program, I thought that all of the organizations would be the same but quickly found that the Arts & Business Council serves clients ranging from youth, the incarcerated and other unique populations.
Working with the Arts & Business Council has helped me understand the Chicago arts ecosystem. I have made friends and found new mentors. Being able to use my brain in a different way has made me a better professional in so many ways.
