Cynthia is an active Antioch Alum who has been on the forefront of social justice activism for over 25 years. With training in front-line counseling at Vanier College in Montreal (her hometown) and in theatre at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco she has found the perfect blend of creativity and activism. Cynthia’s theatre activism began with her work with LGBTQ youth who had been kicked out of their homes for being gay and had resorted to survival sex and has gone on to work with survivors of domestic violence, ex-addicts and people struggling with homelessness. Additionally, with a Masters in Nonprofit Management she is singularly equipped to work both on the front lines delivering services directly to clients and in upper management, interfacing and collaborating with leadership from other organizations and with a broad base of funders. Cynthia is also founder and director of the production company Revolutionary Angel Productions, a ground breaking mission-based and value-driven production company investing in communities by producing socially relevant content for businesses, nonprofits and educational institutions. She is published in the anthology Cootie Shots: Theatrical Inoculations Against Bigotry and has written and directed numerous plays dealing with social justice issues.
