Michelle Westley

Operations Manager

Michelle Westley’s experience in the Arts began at Wallace Hall Fine Arts Center in Gadsden, Alabama, where initial volunteer positions lead to stints as a box office agent, Educational Programs Coordinator, and finally Box Office Manager.  It was a great career that allowed her to nurture her passion of the arts with her family.  In 2015, Michelle and her family moved back to Florida and she began working as a box office agent at Barbara B Mann Performing Arts Hall. Currently, Michelle is responsible for the organization and coordination of office operations which includes programming and monitoring the ticketing and patron management system, coordinating donor relations, and supervising and directing volunteers. In marketing, her job duties include planning and executing a variety of marketing opportunities through media outlets.
