Listens & Engages

"Over a period of years, I have seen Mary Kay effectively serve as a bridge among the many interests and constituencies of the museum. She does so by listening very carefully to the many voices that must be heard to create and implement effective plans. Combining that skill with her outstanding experience working with museums of many types and sizes is a great formula for successful planning."
