PROGRAM DIRECTOR - LISA GILLESPIE
Ms. Gillespie received her BFA in Performance Theater from the University of Mississippi where she was also an active and award-winning member of the Ole Miss Forensics Team (Speech and Interp events, not CSI stuff). Active in local professional theatre, Ms. Gillespie has also spent time behind the scenes directing main-stage shows at The Boiler Room Theatre and teaching and directing at the Act Too Players Studio. Previously, she spent 13 years teaching at St. Cecilia Academy and is excited about starting a new venture at Overbrook. Ms. Gillespie enjoys coffee, a Route 44 Coke Zero with regular cherry syrup, and performing in musicals and plays. Her pageant platform is the eradication of plaque, wax build up and annoying static cling.
