Community Impact Manager
Ariel Keener started planning activities and conferences for young single adults at her church and then graduated to volunteering with as many organizations planning fundraisers and galas as she possibly could. Ariel went back to college in 2014 to obtain her Bachelor of Science in Event and Meeting Management from Metropolitan State University of Denver. Ariel’s love for the non-profit world runs deep, and she found her true calling at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. With all the changes that occurred in the world in 2020, Ariel decided to return home to North Carolina to be closer to her family. Ariel enjoys camping, the beach, and snuggles with her sweet dog, Olive.
