What do you actually do at work?

Set the vision and tone for guest experiences for all interactions with the Museum.  Supervise an expert staff of curators, educators, and designers who provide exhibits, public programs and fun for adults, children, groups and families. My favorite thing to do at work is to spend time with our members and supporters learning about our shared interest in history.

What was your first job (ever)? 

Babysitting… I loved it.

Are you a task-oriented person or a people-oriented person?

Both. I particularly love it when we can match people and tasks in a way that grow the people and the organization.

What do you do for fun?

Camp, saunter in the woods, garden

Last book read?

A cheap paperback historical fiction. It’s my guilty pleasure when I travel.

Last vacation spot?

True vacation:  Hawaii. Other favorite home away from home is the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado.

What one word would friends say best describes you?


What is your personal or business philosophy?

Work hard, tell the truth even when it hurts, and lead by example.
