Why did you choose to work at Chautauqua? What do you like about working at Chautauqua?
I love Chautauqua’s commitment to lifelong learning across disciplines. It provides a second chance to explore things we didn’t have time to fully dive into during our earlier learning years. And I find the staff here to be best in class across the board. They challenge and teach me every day, and I love that.
