Our staff is always asked about their backgrounds and how they came to work at the Driehaus Museum. So we wanted to share some of our amazing team with everyone. And, as always, let us know if you have any other questions.
It is my responsibility to facilitate private museum rentals for individuals as well as corporate clients. The home was designed by the Nickersons for entertaining and socializing, so seeing events come to life in the Museum is particularly special and exciting!
I started in this position in October of 2016.
I am a born and bred Hoosier, having lived in Indiana most of my life. I moved to Chicago in 2012 after receiving a job offer right out of school. I currently live in Logan Square with my significant other and two adorable pups.
I graduated from Indiana University Bloomington with a Bachelor of Science in Art Management. Throughout my time in school, I was fortunate enough to intern at the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art. Through these opportunities, my appreciation and interest in the arts sector grew. Since then I have made it a goal to create a career path for myself within the museum industry.
The head chef without a doubt! Not only do I enjoy cooking as a hobby, but I have a hard time relaxing unless I know that everyone is happy and full.
Assuming that the normal Museum rules don’t apply here, I would invite a group of friends over for a dinner party in the dining room, and maybe a live jazz trio and cocktails after!
Nothing is quite like the holiday season at the Museum. The Holiday Jazz Cabaret is one of my favorites!
One of my favorite moments has been participating in the development process of A Toast to the Gilded Age, a new Museum program which focuses on the history of various libations during the turn of the century. It has been exciting to do something a little out of the box.
