Callie Anderson, Treasurer
Callie earned a BA in Mathematics and an MBA in Accounting and Organizational Behavior before launching a long career in corporate accounting and systems implementation that included positions with non-profit organizations. Following retirement she earned a CELTA certificate and traveled the world teaching English as a second language to underprivileged women and children. She began a love of theatre when she started ballet classes at the age of seven and performed in many local productions. When she settled in Victoria in the spring of 2017, she set a goal to become involved in theatre, which led her to volunteer with the VSS. Her hobbies include volunteer work, reading, dancing and sewing (which she uses to repair chairs for the Festival).
Lisa graduated from the University of Windsor with a BFA in sculpture and drawing. She has worked in the Vancouver film industry for over 15 years, first as a scenic artist in set construction, then as an assistant art director, graphic designer and illustrator in production design. She currently works as a freelance graphic designer specializing in print, packaging and props.
Lisa has lived on the West Coast for over 25 years and deeply values Victoria’s community and culture. The GVSF pulls together many things that she loves about this city, so she is really happy to be involved in the support and promotion of it!
