“It’s just been so busy with our upcoming season announcements and our youth programs we just started but I am retiring in May,” she said.

“The driving force for retirement is that the center is in a really wonderful and strong place and I feel it has so much to offer to someone who may want to take the baton next,” she said.

O’Neill β€” in her 30th year as an arts professional and 26th year with Bay Harbor β€” added that she is also stepping down to “… spend more time with and be with my son, who is going to be a senior in high school this year and to take a breath and enjoy being a full-time mom.”
