Facilities Coordinator, College of the Arts
Colleen Ryan was born and raised in Long Beach and is a product of LB public schools, having attended Tincher Elementary, Hill Middle School, and Wilson High School. She studied Theater Arts at UCLA where she obtained a BFA and learned that she is a obsessive compulsive organizer in need of endless, multiple tasks.
After stints as a "coffee girl," a hotel sales manager, and an event coordinator at a local performing arts center, she joined the College of the Arts in January of 1999.
On campus she enjoys the camaraderie of a the student environment, the performance atmosphere, and anything having to do with Renovation or Construction within the COTA departments. She enjoys spending time with her daughter and husband, reading, sleeping, and watching hockey during those rare times when her schedule allows her to be off-campus.
