I started at the Hunter in January 2005 in preparation for the opening of the Museum's brand new west wing designed by Randall Stout. Along with the new expansion, the Hunter implemented a new strategic plan that focused on the visitor experience. During my employment, I managed studio classes, adult programs, summer camps, teen and after school programs. I also assisted with docent training, teacher workshops, family programs, and the development of interpretative materials in the galleries. The success of my programs were attributed in part to partnerships with the Discovery Museum, Girls Inc, Boys and Girls Clubs, the Urban League, and the Tennessee Aquarium. I started several technology initiatives, including podcasting and digital signage.
