34 – Colleen Jennings-Roggensack – ASU Gammage

This week we are joined by Colleen Jennings-Roggensack who serves as the executive director of Arizona State University’s Gammage and is ASU’s Vice President for Cultural Affairs.  

We recorded this episode just days after Colleen returned from the Tony Awards.  She holds the distinction of being the only Arizonan who casts a ballot for the Tony Awards.  And this year she celebrates both her 25th year leading the way at Gammage and the fact they have already sold out their 2017-18 season.  Not to mention the fact she is responsible for bringing Hamilton to Arizona next year.

Colleen talks about life as a military brat in which she found herself living in 13 states and two countries before going to college.  She recounts the influence her parents had on her and her siblings through the lens of “sacred texts” her parents taught them to live by.

In our brief conversation, we cover several issues related to leadership and personal growth…and we provide some teasers for an eventual Part II to this delightful conversation.
