Yvonne Roen joined NYCCT as a Teaching Artist in 2014 and became a Marketing & Development team member in 2018. Yvonne has been a theater-maker for over three decades and has an M.A. in Applied Theater from CUNY School of Professional Studies. She has used music and theater to create interactive learning experiences for children since 2006.
Over the span of her career as an actress, director, writer, and educator, she’s learned the power of collaboration, the symbiotic relationship between freedom and structure, and the importance of being able to adapt. She uses every one of those skills to help build and nurture relationships in her role as a development professional.
Yvonne’s work as an artist and educator allows her to see firsthand how high-quality arts programming provides some of the best life-skills training available to young people. She loves building avenues of support for that work for NYCCT.
