As executive director, I handle fundraising, program planning, and press, but my real job is to make sure we are doing all we can to help you make historical discoveries and connections. Please come for an event, a tour, a research visit, or a quick look around. You will find friendly and informed staff members and volunteers who are passionate about helping you engage with Windsor’s past, present, and future.
My primary job at the Society is to act as our educator, scheduling and running museum programming with schools. If you’re a teacher or organization leader of some kind looking to set up a special tour or program with us then I’m the person to reach out to! I also handle most of our social media outreach on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I try my best to respond as quickly as possible to questions and comments left on those platforms.
I am the voice on the end of the phone when you call, I manage the office, coordinate reception desk volunteers, and create all marketing materials and graphics. Genealogy has been a passion of mine for many years and I love to hear about exciting finds in your family tree.
My job is to help people find and evaluate information. I may not know the answers to every question, but I will try my hardest to find them, or at least point people in the right direction. I’d love to help you look into your family’s genealogy, research the history of your house, find out what kinds of businesses and organizations helped shape the town over the past four centuries, or anything else you want to know.
I have been interested in history since I was a very young child. I love the way historic artifacts bring history to life for people in such a visceral way. I love working at Windsor Historical Society because there are such a wealth of artifacts to work from; fun, friendly people to work with; and a community with a particularly strong interest in learning about and sharing its past.
