Montgomery is the senior human resources executive at Deckers Outdoor Corp. and brings a global sensibility, boundless creativity and a love of live music to the team.

Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Montgomery still remembers her first excursion into theater, as well as dancing on the Lobero stage as a child.

She attended college in San Diego and continued on to establish her career in Los Angeles.

What came next was a series of moves to Boston, Miami, Latin America and the Middle East. After years of globetrotting, Montgomery has returned to Santa Barbara and has been working with Deckers Outdoor Corp, for four years.

“From a professional standpoint, I feel my purpose is to help people realize their potential through their passions and environments,” Montgomery said. “Companies, similar to cultural venues in particular, can inspire creativity and innovation, and this is a core value in how I approach my work.”

She and her husband, David McKeever, are also involved with the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara.

Montgomery remembers a standout evening at the Lobero recently at a Sings Like Hell presentation of Del Castillo.

“People at the Lobero get up, they get into it, and they have fun! That’s what I love about this special place,” she said. “I think the Lobero really lends itself to that connection because it’s so intimate.”

Doug Wood continues on as president of the Lobero Theatre Foundation Board of Directors. Serving with Wood will be Amy Gresh (vice president), Jeff DeVine (secretary), William Nasif (treasurer), George Burtness (past president), Tim Casey and Melissa Fassett (at large).

— Angie Bertucci is a marketing and communications coordinator for the Lobero Theatre.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
