Director, Membership, Marketing & Communications
I feel fortunate to be back at the ASP, a place I once called home for seven years. I then took a seven year hiatus from the ASP and directed a team of artists, scientists, and exhibit developers at the San Francisco science and art institution, the Exploratorium, to move the museum to its new home on Pier 15 in 2013. My first job out of High School was as an usher at the Morrison Planetarium in San Francisco that led to my appreciation of the night sky! The first 15 years of my professional career however were spent on the creative side of Bay Area specialty retailing, licensed merchandising, and brand management all with high profile retail and manufacturing companies. The work, along with the next 13 years of non-profit sector work with the ASP & Exploratorium, developed my skills as a management leader directing grant-funded projects and project managers and teams, government grant & foundation budgets, and administrative processes. Now back at the ASP, I’m excited to be working with the Board of Directors and Executive Director to strategically rebuild a robust membership structure and improve communications with the member and donor base who continue to support the ASPs work. In my spare time, I love to travel with my family, bake, toot my flute, garden and am an avid foodie.
