Skylar Rea received her Business Administration degree from Saint Joseph's University in 2009. Her love for music began at home where she participated in weekly jam sessions with her family. Even though she enjoyed singing with her loved ones, she has always been shy and preferred working behind the scenes. At Saint Joseph's University, her favorite course was Music Marketing. This course was confirmation to her that combining her love of Music and Marketing can be a fulfilling career. After college, she worked at R. REA CORP, CBS Radio, Body by Brooklyn, planned events for start-up brands and volunteered at various organizations. Skylar is currently taking online courses at George Washington University to receive her certification in Event Management. Skylar is pleased to be the new member of the DC Jazz Festival team. She plans on using her gift to raise awareness of the DC Jazz Festival to the world.
