Meet the Dixon Staff 2013: Chantal Drake


Chantal Drake, Director of Communications

What’s your job title?
Director of Communications

Favorite Dixon exhibition so far?
Bold Cautious True – I loved the historical and literary narrative of the show.

Favorite plant/flower in the gardens?
Peonies! I am developing a small obsession with them.

Favorite Memphis restaurant?
The Ethiopian Restaurant – it is technically in Cordova, but the food is so good and it has a great Memphis/family feel. A single mother from Ethiopia owns it and sometimes her two small daughters help take orders. :)

Tigers or Grizzlies?
Tigers – the fact that Memphis’ own born and bred young people get to represent the city on a national stage and a chance to further their education is just awesome. Love that program and Josh Pastner.

What’s something people might be surprised to know about you?
I LOVE Bollywood movies!
