Hi all, I’m Kat and I am the Volunteer Coordinator here at WaterFire! I started here in May 2018 as the Volunteer Management and Engagement intern as my last requirement before receiving my bachelor’s degree in Program and Event Management from the University of New Hampshire. In May 2019 I started my full-time position in the Volunteer Department creating relationships and coordinating volunteers, leading many, many ‘Woodpile Workouts’, preparing materials and communications for our downtown lightings and so much more.
I am the Events and Operations Associate at WaterFire. I started as a Special Events Intern three years ago and then worked my way up to a full-time position in the Operations Department. For me, no two days are ever the same but I mainly work on all the details of the logistics to help put an event together alongside my team.
Hi there, my name is Ed Cabral and I’m the manager of sponsorships and corporate relations at WaterFire Providence. I’ve been with WaterFire for just under two years.
One of the things that people don’t know about WaterFire is that we’re a small organization with a small team that works behind the scenes. And the reason why people don’t understand that or know that is because we put such an amazing elaborate large production on downtown Providence with our WaterFire lightings.
