Visitor Experience Group
I joined what is now the Visitor Experience Group (VEX) in early 2013. My early role was planning what was then known as the Greater Philadelphia Visitor Services Symposium, a one day conference for frontline staff in area museums. In the years since, that one day symposium has grown into a three-day, international conference and our small planning team now is a fully-incorporated nonprofit board that oversees committees, provides consulting for clients along the Eastern seaboard, and plans the annual conference.
Upon joining the team, I was given the reigns of VEX's social media presence based on my earlier successes with the Elfreth's Alley and Philadelphia Emerging Museum Professionals social accounts. As the organization professionalized, I was appointed chair of the Marketing Committee, and in my time as chair every conference has sold out.
