The wood studio coordinator reports directly to the studio operations manager and oversees the wood studio. The coordinator works directly with the studio team and collaboratively across the organization to support all programming and studio use throughout the year. This is accomplished by assuring that the facilities and equipment are in good working order and by communicating with programs and instructional staff to plan and support successful programming.
