Just a few weeks ago, WRBH added a new member to the team– our new Development Director, Anne Guillot! We’re super excited to have her as a member of our staff and thought we’d invite her to write a few things about herself so you can get to know her as well:
1.) She worked in the Hospitality & Tourism Industry for nearly 10 years, everything from serving to bartending to large scale event production.
2.) She studied Food Science & Technology at LSU. Studied Psychology with a minor in Anthropology at ULL. While at UL, she conducted psychological research on “Cajuns, Creoles and Sleep Paralysis” that explored health disparities, specifically the ways ethnicity and folklore affect quality of sleep. Since she studied both Psych and Anthro, her focus was cross-cultural psychology and a historically situated psychology.
3.) Some of her Culturally Themed Posters and Design work can be found at: https://www.behance.net/astrangeloop.
