DRIVE Advisory Committee
Whitney GaleEvent Coordinator
Cara Irish Pubs
Whitney was born and raised in Minneapolis.
After high school in 2001-2002 she dabbled in music. By 2004, she had helped to write and perform vocals for an electro-pop album called Broken Doll. The CD was released locally while she was studying abroad in Italy.
From 2002-2005 she was a full-time student at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities while working part-time as a hostess at the Local. In 2004, she studied abroad in Firenze, Italy and stayed on to travel Europe for a total of six months.
Between 2002 and 2011, her position with the Cara Irish Pubs had grown and evolved incredibly. Now, Whitney is the event coordinator for Kieran's & the Liffey. In 2011, she was chosen as the DRIVE Emerging Leader of the Year alongside her colleague Jessie Dill.
Whitney has always enjoyed the arts, traveling and spending time outdoors. Whitney has a growing appreciation for good food, craft beers/cocktails and quality life experiences.
In the future, she hopes to make more time for artistic expression, to explore more of the world and to continue with her career at Cara by building the amazing personal and professional relationships that she has.
