Director of Development

What I do at the Chazen: I work on behalf of the director to connect alumni, donors, and friends of the Chazen with philanthropic opportunities to support the museum and its mission.

When I started: October 31, 2022

Insider tips for visitors: Choose your own adventure when you visit the Chazen! The museum is free and open to the public so your visit can take many forms, like attending an evening event, spending an afternoon exploring the two buildings, or taking just 10 minutes out of your day to decompress in front of a single artwork.
