I most recently served as the President and CEO of the EcoTarium after serving in leadership roles at cultural institutions in Texas for thirteen years. Prior to moving to the Worcester area, I served as the executive director of the Trinity River Audubon Center, one of the National Audubon Society’s flagship nature centers in Dallas, Texas.


I grew up in Medford, Massachusetts and earned her B.A. in art history from Boston College. Growing up, it was common to find me with my parents bird-watching down on the Mystic River, which was just a couple of blocks from my childhood home. As a child I was a frequent visitor of museums, and my career began at the Museum of Science in Boston, where I worked for 13 years prior to moving to Texas.


In Texas, Lucy I as the Director of School Programs and helped open the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in downtown Dallas after serving for five years as the education manager at the Dallas Zoo and Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park. Prior to my role at the zoo, I served as the Live Animal Biologist at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. How I got to Texas is a long story about a wedding, the Boston Red Sox, and love at first sight.


I proudly serves on the board of Deep Indigo Collective and as an honorary board member of the Informal Science Education Association. I have also served on the board of the Association of Science and Technology Centers, Village Tech Schools, and the Worcester Cultural Coalition. I love cultural organization, especially science-based ones, and I know our future is bright.
