Welcome to New Staff

Please join us in welcoming Kim Renko, who’ll be serving as our Marketing Coordinator. 

"I became part of the Spotlight family five years ago when my daughter auditioned for her first show, and since then my whole family has become involved and we love it!  As a Spotlight Mom, you will find me serving in the make-up room and having a ball with the families of McHenry county.  Professionally, I have had the privilege of working in many different aspects of the arts.  I have worked primarily in product and brand development for brands such as Disney and Oshkosh B' Gosh but have also worked as a professional make up artist and stylist.  I am looking forward to working in the Spotlight office and spreading the word about this fantastic organization!"  ~ Kim Renko 

We’d also like to welcome Lisa Nazar, who’ll be serving as NW Cook’s class coordinator.  Bio coming soon!
