Carly Starr is a museum enthusiast with a diverse background in marketing, administration, and – of course – history. Born and raised in Rocklin, she returned to the area seasonally during college to work at the Leland Stanford Mansion, a State Historic Park, and has never stopped working in museums since.
Carly received her bachelor’s degree in history from the University of California, Los Angeles. After graduation, she moved to Boston and became the marketing coordinator for an engineering firm, in addition to working for the Otis House museum. At that museum, she was formally trained by Historic New England in historic housekeeping and preservation techniques. Since returning to California, Carly has been at a political lobbying firm providing administrative services, as well as being a regular docent for the California State Railroad Museum.
In her spare time, Carly enjoys traveling anywhere and everywhere, exploring the restaurants in Midtown, reading history books (yes, really!), watching British television, and – naturally – visiting museums.
Carly is excited to join the California Automobile Museum, and looks forward to increasing her knowledge and being a part of the team that shares the fascinating story of the automobile to the visitors.
