AHOY! Mississippi Maritime
I write you as the Mississippi Maritime Museum’s executive director. I am honored and humbled to be at the helm of this fantastic Mississippi maritime organization. The Mississippi gulf coast and Pascagoula are centered in shipbuilding and rich maritime history. I am committed to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to understand and appreciate Mississippi’s gulf coast and maritime heritage, shipbuilding and our sea connection. Please consider the opportunity to invest in our mission to preserve the maritime history and engage the maritime future of our Mississippi seafaring and shipbuilding heritage. My maritime museum education and operational professional experience includes significant tenure with Mystic Seaport and Maritime Museum, Mashantucket Indian Museum and Research Center and Gulf Quest Maritime Museum. I was delighted to gain invaluable museum experience within museum operations, research and archives projects, visitor service, grant inclusions, facility and exhibit planning and inception.
Also, I enjoyed tenure as college president for a period of 20 years focused on standards of excellence within student, educational success, ROI for investors, hedge fund liaison, community outreach, finance, creating and implementing
educational programming and institutional effectiveness within strategy planning and achievements. My successful maritime and educational operational experience allows me to partner with our communities and public developing and implementing educational programs, exhibitions, collections, educational activities, fund raising initiatives and most importantly, partnering with our local communities safeguarding the museum’s strategic direction to fulfill our maritime mission and increase local, statewide, national and international awareness and prominence.
Yours in maritime,
