Hi! I'm Lonita. As a film critic, I'm a member of the Kansas City Film Critics Circle and I contribute to daily lifestyle show, Better KC on KCTV 5 (CBS affiliate), IN Kansas City Magazine and act.land. I merrily serve the boards of the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Museum Foundation, Film Society KC and Avila School of Visual and Communication Arts (Advisory). I support filmmakers through volunteerism at events like Tallgrass FF and 13 years at Sundance Film Festival. I super enjoy my roles as VP of Sales at Cinematic Visions and head of the Development Division at Business Elevation Academy. Please look for Awaken the Sleeper and the forthcoming, Jellabias -- novels in the Chronicles of Cyn book series. I'm proud to participate in the growth of Kansas City film and champion burgeoning artists through entertainment company, Cookie Lane. I'm grateful to be here in this community with you incredible makers.
