A little about our Executive Director…
I have been a part of Sacramento’s most popular cultural amenities starting in 1991 when I began my career with the Sacramento Zoo. As their marketing director for over a decade, I worked with a great team to bring to Sacramento a white alligator exhibit, the Bug Zone, and penguins! In 2008 I moved to the California State Railroad Museum Foundation, the nonprofit cooperating association supporting the California State Railroad Museum and Railtown 1897 State Historic Park. At both locations I headed up membership and events including the very popular Polar Express Train Ride which netted over $500,000 for the two state parks.
In January of 2016, I traded in my steel wheels for rubber wheels and joined the terrific team at the California Automobile Museum. As Executive Director, my first priorities are to improve and expand our education programs, grow our membership and support base, and show the region what a fun and dynamic California cultural resource we have here in the Sacramento area. Every day we strive to preserve and share the stories of the automobile and the incredible impact they have had and continue to have on our lives as Californians.
When I am not at the Museum, I am also telling stories of another kind – fairytales, fables, folktales, tall tales, and historical legends. Performing family-friendly multicultural stories and poems for the young and young at heart at faires, festivals, museums, schools, libraries, bookstores, parks, and Girl Scouts gatherings and celebrations. I have been the resident storyteller for Sacramento Zoo overnight programs for nearly 20 years. And I like to share living history characters such as the radical women who chose to wear bloomers; Suffragettes; Harvey Girls; Stage Coach driver, Charlie Parkhurst; WWII’s “Rosie the Riveter”; railroading women; and westward traveling women from covered wagons, to automobiles.
