What about your museum excites you?

Our collection and our staff!

What’s one thing — either industry/work-related or not — you learned in the past month?

Brain health is highly undervalued, white boards can make staff meetings more fun, and budgeting for construction projects feels like a comedy act.

What about the AAMG mission excites you?

We are unique in higher education and our communities and we can help one another and learn from and with each other!

How do you decompress from tough work days?

Look at the mountains, take a walk, tickle my daughter so I can hear her laugh.

Print or audio books?

Both! Depends
