CEO | Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum 

What are you most looking forward to accomplishing in 2024?

In 2024, we are embarking on significant growth at the Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum. We have already added new art murals from diverse artists, exciting new exhibits, and fossils and artifacts to our dinosaur exhibit. During the rest of 2024, we will begin renovating our third floor and develop fundraising plans for our outdoor garden space. Our goals are to develop new offerings to serve even more children by expanding our exhibits to appeal to various ages and to ensure that all children have the opportunity to visit the museum.

What’s one thing you want to say to the other members of your C-suite?

You are awesome! I have many strong female and male leaders on my team, and they have a heartfelt passion for our mission. We have fun together and get stuff done. I’m grateful for them every day.
