She is responsible for overseeing the food and beverage operations of Athletic Park, from hiring and training game day employees to implementing a great concession and hospitality menu for fans. Barta has a degree in mathematics and business administration from St. Norbert College where she was a college athlete.

Ryan Malone

Malone interned for the Woodchucks during the 2019 and 2020 seasons as a video production intern and joined the front office as the marketing and creative services manager. He will be responsible for creating content for various platforms, overseeing the game day video production team, and working with the rest of the front office to fulfill corporate contracts. Malone recently graduated from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with a degree in communications, with a media studies emphasis.

“We are excited to be able to bring some of our former summer interns into full time positions within our front office,” said team owner Mark Macdonald in a news release. “Their previous experience with the team will help them greatly as they transition into full time roles with the Woodchucks.”
