“I had the honor of working with Rhett at AC Entertainment when she was the Digital Communications Manager for the Bijou Theatre. Rhett has tremendous personal strengths that make her an asset to any brand or company: she’s very smart, forward thinking, has a heart of gold, and shows great intuition. She has her finger is on the pulse of all the trends in the digital world and she regularly brings new creative ideas to the table. Rhett was invaluable to the Bijou in launching and promoting new programs and fundraising campaigns with great success.”
