The Mauldin Cultural Center is managed under the Office of Cultural Affairs. Check out our team of lovely individuals who make this all possible!


mauldin_KK2Keira Kitchings, Cultural Director

Keira is the director for the Mauldin Cultural Center. Her main role is creating programming and events, driving the vision for the center. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Winthrop University, Keira spent her career planning and managing a wide variety of events from gallery receptions and galas to food tastings and festivals. No matter the size of the event, it’s always really rewarding when everything goes off without a hitch.

“Events are like puzzles. I always start my planning process by taking a look at the end goal and breaking it down into smaller components, allowing me to see the nitty gritty details of each event clearly so that we can make the big picture dream a reality.”

When she’s not working, you can find her on the water, pitching a tent, trying new foods and craft beverages, or putting her creative skills to use.

Jeannie handles marketing and graphic design for the city. Born and raised in Greenville, she moved away from the Upstate to attend Winthrop University, where she earned a BFA in Illustration. She enjoys finding ways to communicate ideas visually, whether through realistic drawings or abstract design.

Jeannie likes to spend time with her friends, family, and cats. She writes and draws her own webcomic and when she isn’t making comics, she’s reading them. She also loves supporting the performing arts in the Upstate, from local theatre to indie musicians and more.
