Staff Profile: Amy Hunter – Administrator & Interim Executive Assistant to the Artistic Director
How long have you worked at Soulpepper and tell us a little bit about what your job consists of lately.
I’ve worked at Soulpepper since December 2015. I’m an administrator, which lately has consisted of creating & tracking contracts, and working with our payroll department to make sure our artists get paid. I’m also the executive assistant to Albert Schultz, our Artistic Director, which can include any number of things, from managing his schedule, to providing him with any resources he might need throughout the course of his day. He’s an incredibly busy person, which makes me an incredibly busy assistant!
What is something we might be surprised to know about you?
I used to perform & tour professionally as a folk-pop musician, and my debut album was recorded & produced by Drake’s producer!
Any ongoing projects outside of work?
A new project I just launched is an online vintage clothing shop on Etsy which is curated by me. It’s called Sweet Fig Finds and I’m adding new pieces to it nearly every day. I personally source all the pieces myself, so lately my spare time has consisted of a lot of thrifting for vintage clothes.
What keeps you busy outside of work?
When I’m not thrifting for my online shop I’m usually out on the town! I like to be busy, and this city has so much to offer. I like to attend art openings/music shows, and try new restaurants. I’m also a bit of a coffee enthusiast, so I spend a lot of time sampling different roasts or beans from various regions.
What do you love about working at Soulpepper?
Soulpepper is an exciting and innovative organization, which makes working here pretty exciting too. That, and the people who work here are so kind and passionate, it’s contagious.
