Samantha is a graduate of Indiana University Bloomington, where she double majored in journalism and communications. Most recently a member of Franciscan Health’s marketing department, she brings 10 years of marketing and communications experience to LCA. With a strong background in graphic design, writing, public relations and project management, Samantha will give a fresh approach to interactions with local communities; marketing exhibitions, education and events; and LCA’s branding. In addition, she will oversee the efforts of the front desk and Gallery Shop staff.
Janet Bloch, executive director of LCA, said, “I am so excited Samantha joined our team. Her marketing expertise and creative vision will bring LCA into a new phase of development. Increasing LCA’s visibility within the region and ensuring audiences in Michigan City are aware of our meaningful programs is a big goal. I have utmost confidence in her.”
“All of the diverse, world-class events and programs really drew me to LCA. There is something here for everyone. LCA’s determination to remove barriers and provide everyone in our community with equal access to exceptional art experiences is what I’m most excited about,” said Samantha.
