Occupation: Library Director at Morningside College
Position on Board: Secretary
Why did you join the board? I joined MAMAT because I love history and believe in developing and serving the community in which one resides.
What do you think you can contribute to the museum? I have experience and knowledge in information organization, website design and creation, graphic design and a general love and desire to learn and use technology.
What is your favorite exhibit or display at the museum? The entire museum is pretty neat; however, if forced to chose, I enjoy the full size exhibits of plans and automobiles.
Occupation: Community Manager at Chatterkick
Why did you join the MAMAT board? As an undergrad at Morningside, I helped develop an advertising plan for the museum in a group project for Principles of Advertising. I wanted to get more involved in the community and was encouraged by Pam Mickelson to join the board to help improve marketing and digital strategies. I joined to get more involved in the community, support a local business, continue learning from a long-time mentor, and more importantly, to honor a special veteran closed to my heart, my grandfather who recently passed.
What do you think you can contribute to the museum by being on the board? I hope to develop and implement new marketing strategies, update cohesive graphic design work, and incorporate social and digital strategies. More importantly, I look forward to supporting an organization and team that deserves recognition from Siouxland.
What is your favorite exhibit or display in the museum? My favorite thing about the museum isn't the exhibits or the displays but the people and stories behind them.
