Courtney Kaia

Courtney is filled with gratitude to spend her first summer in Chatham with the extraordinary Mac-Haydn team! A graduate of California Polytechnic State University with a degree in Business Administration and a Theatre Arts minor. She served as the Marketing Associate for Cal Poly’s original ensemble Writer’s Block, Marketing Intern at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, and most recently as a Workshop Teacher and Brand Ambassador at the Museum of Broadway. Courtney has always dreamed of playing a role in theatrical stories being told, helping to promote these stories, and creating life changing experiences within the world of visual and performing arts. She would not be where she is today if not for her family, friends, golden retriever Poppy, and the Mac for supporting her dreams. “No day but today!” @courtkaia
