Audience Engagement & Public Relations Manager

If you could have dinner with any artist or scientist, who would you choose and why?

I would dine with Mary Cassatt. She seemed like such a funny, determined, and strong-willed woman. I would love to know where she found her strength and drive to become the only American artist, and one of the only women, to exhibit with the Impressionists in Paris.


What's your favorite thing about Louisiana Art & Science Museum?

My favorite thing is how many school groups visit the Museum. It is such a wonderful thing to watch the children’s curiosity run wild after they learn from a science class, watch a planetarium show, or meet our mummy.
