Selina ArnettExecutive Director
Selina began her work at Leeds in 2013 after looking for a way to be connected and create the kind of community where creativity is valued. She served as a volunteer manager and later became involved in development and operations. She served as Vice President of the Board for four years during a major renovation and three seasons of theater. She studied at the University of Kentucky and more recently took part in the Harwood Public Innovator’s Training and Kentucky Nonprofit Board Governance training. In her spare time she loves to dance and spend time outdoors. Occasionally she is able to make a meeting at the Clark County Homemakers with her club Indian Old Fields and she is an advocate and teacher for health and wellness for all ages. Her passion for a vibrant community brought her back to Leeds in 2021 and she is excited to be working again with the Leeds family during an exciting time of change and renewal.
