Dear wonderful MOD members,
I am writing to let you know that I am retiring as Executive Director of MOD in June 2019.
Co-founding and leading the Museum from the seed of an idea to the thriving organization you love to visit has been one of the most satisfying experiences of my life.
What could be more fun than bringing together a group of creative people who are passionate about early science learning and the power of play; devising and building exhibits, and planning fun programs and special events? That experience is only matched by working side-by-side, day-by-day with fun, flexible, clever and kind staff members; meeting fantastic families; watching babies grow from infancy into engaged and delightful young children and seeing it all come together in an enriching experience for families.
MOD is a solid organization with a dedicated Board of Directors who are using their expertise and experience to recruit the very best next MOD Executive Director to make this transition seamless.
I will continue to be involved with MOD as I work on a personal book project and spend more time with my own grandchildren.
Thank you to each and every one of you who has believed in the vision I had and has shared the wonder of your children and grandchildren with me over the past four years.
With love and gratitude,
Executive Director of the Santa Cruz Children's Museum of Discovery
