We’re pleased and proud to introduce Kristin Kilmer as the newest member of our Modern family. She’ll be taking over the huge responsibilities of being our Managing Director. Though she may be new to us, she’s no stranger to the performing arts scene in North Idaho and she has a deep history in the administration of the entertainment world.
Ms. Kilmer spent the earliest part of her career in the Film and TV industry. She started out as a production assistant in Seattle and worked her way through the industry until finally producing TV shows in Los Angeles. Along the way she gained plenty of experience in the art of “the ask,” … not just for money, but also negotiating trades, contracts, and agreements, everything needed to help the production team bring a concept to reality.
Her most recent position was the Director of Programming and Events at The Jacklin Arts & Cultural Center in Post Falls, ID, where she was solely responsible for the programming of the arts and culture events. Writing grants, procuring and maintaining sponsorships and yearly membership programs has also filled her task list all the while maintaining day to day operations.
Prior to her arrival to The JACC, she was with The Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre and worked with Ellen Travolta assisting the production of her Christmas shows at The CDA Resort. At
CST, she was hired as a part-time employee and quickly moved up to Box Office Manager, handling everything from ticket sales to designing the summer playbill. With Mrs. Travolta, she was referred to as her “right arm” while producing “A Christmas Cabaret” at The Coeur d’Alene Resort.
Kristin will be based out of The Modern-CDA and will have a host of duties including managing the day-to-day operations while working hard to help chart our path into the future.
