Beth

Beth has spent over 30 years in the healthcare and clinical research environment, successfully running her own consulting business as well as serving as an associate professor. As a professional trainer and educator in a serious and heavily regulated environment, Beth has had to find creative ways to engage audiences, make them pay attention, enjoy the learning process, and translate knowledge effectively in their daily interactions. Enter improv! While she has more recently been formally trained in the art and science of improv, she considers herself a natural and has loved being on stage since entertaining her parents (and siblings, who begrudgingly attended) at her first ballet and piano recitals at the age of 5.

Beth received her B.S. in Occupational Therapy from the University of Wisconsin and an M.B.A. from the University of Texas.

Drew

Drew has more than 10 years of experience in professional marketing roles. While she loves the creative aspects of marketing, she’s not too fond of sitting at a desk. To break up the monotony, Drew began her formal improv training in 2008 and never looked back. In 2010, she began performing improv regularly at an Atlanta-based theater, where she learned how empowering (and fun!) improv can be. After working to perfect the craft, Drew began sharing her love for improv through teaching workshops and classes. Her improv teaching experience spans far and wide, and she enjoys seeing all of the different settings in which improv can be applied.

Drew graduated from Georgia State University with degrees in Communication and Journalism.

Melissa

Over the past 20 years, Melissa’s career has focused on fostering the well-being of animals and enhancing the understanding of the human-animal bond. Early in her career, Melissa discovered that she particularly enjoyed communicating with and educating clients. Melissa soon took this passion to Canine Assistants, a service dog organization, where she became the Director of Education. Whether educating audiences or training volunteers, Melissa quickly realized that her prior community-based acting experience served her well. In 2014, Melissa ventured into the entrepreneurial world and decided a creative mindset would assist her in her journey. She began studying and practicing improv and has witnessed first-hand how improv enhances professional and personal interactions.

Melissa received her B.S. in Zoology from Duke University and her D.V.M. from the University of Florida.
