Tori Schneider has lived in Fort Wayne, Indiana for most of her life and has enjoyed being part of an ever blossoming community. She has roots within the performing arts via choirs and theater performances in which she was a part of most of her school years. She found her passion to connect with people through this and has never stopped learning how to connect and engage with the people she surrounds herself with. In loving human connection she stepped foot into a cosmetology career in 2013, but decided that a career in marketing was calling her name. So, while she grew her cosmetology business she attended college to achieve a B.S. in marketing specializing in promotion, branding, and advertising. During her college education she obtained a marketing internship at Fort Wayne Dance Collective and fell in love with the idea of giving back to the community in the form of arts education. In that experience, she decided that working for an organization that gave back to its community is where she was meant to be.
Graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2019 from Indiana Wesleyan University she pursued her marketing degree in the form of volunteer and freelance work. Her volunteer work consists of aiding her church in marketing content creation as well as obtaining a position on the YWCA marketing committee. Other than her career journey she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She cherishes her time spent on her church’s worship, creative, and leadership teams. No matter what she is participating in, her goal in life is to make this world a better place. Whether that be through her professional or personal life (or both) she hopes to make a positive impact in this community and beyond.
