Colleen Geyer joined the JGL team in early 2019. She has over a dozen years of experience in the food and beverage industry, with nearly half of that time focused in arts management. Colleen started as a back of house employee and eventually moved to the front of house while studying as a theatre major in college. After moving back to her hometown of Pittsburgh, Colleen acquired her first management role with big Burrito Restaurant Group- to whom she attributes much of her knowledge and experience.

Colleen made the decision to return to the arts and became the Front of House Manager at Pittsburgh’s City Theatre Company. City Theatre truly facilitated her growth as an arts administrator and deepened her understanding of the not-for-profit sector. Those very qualities made her an exemplary choice for General Manager at the Cabaret Theater, a project of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. Her role with PCT exercised all of her years of restaurant experience and further developed her event planning and programming skills, giving her a well-rounded approach to foodservice consulting.
