Amy Salvaggio - Interim Director

She began her studies in ancient history and archaeology, which led to a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas and Master of Arts in Classics from Texas Tech.

Brittany Burns - Visitor Center & Events Manager

Brittany Burns - Visitor Center & Events Manager

Brittany was born & raised in Bryan-College Station, Texas. Her love for all things planning and coordination commenced about 3 years ago. In 2015, she began to explore and venture out to more insight & learning experiences to prepare her for such a role. Throughout many event planning courses taken through The Northern Academy of Wedding & Event Planning, the New York Institute of Art & Design, and even through the opportunity to assist with weddings directly, Brittany has grown a love and passion for the world of event planning. Brittany lives by the mantra “customer service is my life and hospitality is my heart.” Being a mother of 3 amazing, growing boys, has within itself taught Brittany the ropes of being a planner. In addition to her career, Brittany enjoys singing, dancing, having fun with family, trying new venues and restaurants, and using her creative mind to be a blessing to others. Brittany is honored & excited to become a part of the family at The Arts Council! 
Brooke Phillips - Marketing & Design Intern

Brooke Phillips - Marketing & Design Intern

Brooke grew up in Clearwater, Florida and moved to Bryan, Texas back in 2013. Having a passion for art since she was nine years old, she loved to play with paints and make a colorful mess of everything she touched! With her dad being a programmer with lots of technology (and less patience for stained carpet), she grew up on computers dabbling with photo-editing software. Dabbling turned into artwork, and artwork turned into a calling - she has decided to study her calling in Graphic Design with the new workforce program at Blinn College. Brooke is excited to start her journey with the Arts Council of Brazos Valley!
Isabel Gonzalez - Programs Intern

Isabel Gonzalez - Programs Intern

Isabel was born and raised in Clyde, Texas and has lived there her entire life. After being accepted into Texas A&M on a full-ride, she moved to College Station where she graduated this past May with a major in Anthropology and a minor in Museum Studies. Her fascination with different cultures around the world (past and present) implemented her decision to pursue a degree in anthropology with a focus in cultural anthropology. In her spare time, Isabel can most likely be found watching movies, another great passion of hers. A bona fide cinephile, she considers the Lord of the Rings trilogy to be the greatest piece of cinematic art in human history. Isabel has always recognized the effect that a work of art can have on different people and is very excited to start her internship in making the arts more accessible to the Brazos Valley area.
