Missy Paschke-Wood, Community Resource Director
Until she joined The Hacienda at the Canyon in May, 2019, Missy Paschke-Wood’s professional background had been entirely in the arts. This fertile training ground led to her landing her dream job as our Community Resource Director, a joint position with the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance (SAACA). Missy is thrilled to be leading the Canyon Community Life team in programming a wide variety of life-enriching activities, classes, trips and events for the enjoyment of Canyon members. Missy was previously associated with the Festival International de Lousiane, the largest Francophone music festival in the US, the Tucson Jazz Festival, and Arizona Theatre Company. She moonlights monthly with Retro Game Show Night and is a volunteer DJ on KXCI. Missy believes the arts make life worth living and is happiest when lots of people are having a great time together. She puts the life into community wherever she goes.
