Mikala Francini

Chief of Staff

Mikala (she/her) is Chief of Staff at Satiated Artists and focuses on helping our people, whether that’s in terms of mindful matchmaking, creating work and learning opportunities for artists and setting them up for success, or reinventing the processes by which Satiated Artists carries out our vision of business transformation via creative perspective. She takes great pride in growing our team of inclusive organizational leaders who solve, prioritize, and anticipate for our clients. Artistically, her background is primarily in stage management, poetry, playwriting, producing, dramaturgy, and video editing. Outside of the arts, Mikala’s experience includes work in the education, professional development, administration, and hospitality industries. When she isn’t chasing Laura around, Mikala can be found chasing her small rescue mutt named Ted around Chicago.

Artist Statement

"I relish in meaning-making, so I create and appreciate art that asks existential questions and that magnifies staggering realizations. I also think it’s important to facilitate or witness the stories of others being told as a form of inclusivity and community healing."
