Until the pandemic changed life dramatically, you would find my face welcoming all to the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh. Hired in 2014 as a Museum Educator I quickly gained favor with my fellow floor staff and was elected as a staff representative. This position allowed access to the staff working directly with visitors to have a voice with upper management.
In 2015 the musuem restructured and I joined the Visitor Services team as a Visitor Services Associate. While the duties were similar to the Museum Educator duties of creating an invigorating and enriching experience for all, the department allowed me to move into a full time position. I was hired full time as a Senior Visitor Services Associate in 2017- this position recognized the work I was already doing, training new hires and being a point person in guided trips, especially with visitors with different needs.
