Originally a Detroit native, Cleveland has become Thea’s new home after receiving a Bachelors of Art from Hamilton College, where she pursued a double concentration in Art History and Hispanic Studies. Thea appreciates how artists and designers see the world through a lens of limitless potential, and is excited to bring the next generation of creative problem-solvers to Cleveland. Before working for the Cleveland Institute of Art, Thea worked for the Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College and the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland. From riding her bike around town to playing in local pinball leagues, and running a project space for artists, Thea enjoys the unique experiences only Cleveland can offer.

Thea covers the following territories: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and all Ohio zip codes that begin with: 433, 434, 435, 436, 440, 442, 443, 444, 445, 446, 447, 448, 449, 458.
