As part of the #EHSCareerMonth series, we talked to Amy Keller, who is the Creative Director for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, a minor league hockey team based in Allentown that plays in the American Hockey League (AHL). She coordinates the in-game fan experience for those attending the action at the PPL Center.
She provided a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes work that goes into the production of a game discussing the long hours of preparation for the event. In addition to hearing about her duties, responsibilities, and how she arrived in Lehigh Valley, Keller, a Northampton High School graduate, shares that she is in charge of sounding the goal horn after the Phantoms score. She closed out the conversation giving students advice on how to get started now if they hope to pursue a career similar to hers.
