What I'm Up To
For the second year in a row, I was lucky enough to get to ring in the new year with some amazing new friends and emerging museum professionals. As the program coordinator for the Greater Phoenix Emerging Museum Professionals, it's up to me to plan events, meet-ups, and programs. Since I've taken over the Greater Phoenix EMP's, I've learned a lot and every time I plan an event, I am amazed and humbled all over again by the quality of those emerging professionals in my field.
This year's Happy New Year Happy Hour was at OHSO Brewery in Arcadia and there were some new faces and some old friends. The conversation was even better than the guac (which is really saying something, because that guac is incredible). Thanks for making working in AZ museums so much fun, you guys! Can't wait for more fun in 2016!
