TITLE: Milford Branch Director
COMPANY: The Music School of Delaware
What the nominator said: “At just 28 years old, Katie Inie-Richards is the youngest director of the senior leadership team at The Music School of Delaware, where she supervises 28 faculty members. Her energy and enthusiasm help cultivate a deeper appreciation for the transformative power of the arts throughout the Kent and Sussex counties.
Your biggest break: Getting promoted to Milford Branch Director at the Music School of Delaware.
Best career advice you ever got: “Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind always.”
Two words that best describe you: Enthusiastic and intense.
Work /life balance technique you recommend: I make a list before I go to bed each night of everything I want to do the next day. This helps me remain focused and organized. I also try to minimize working after I go home for the day.
If you were in charge of Delaware: Everyone would be required to be involved in music —playing an instrument or singing — as I believe music can save the world. Music is a powerful and effective tool that can connect people around the world — a universal language.
