Susanna is responsible for cataloging, inventorying and general care of the Museum's collections, as well as handling all object donations, acquisitions and loans. Thanks to a childhood appreciation for museums, a longtime fascination with historical objects, and a knack for organization, she has dedicated her career to museum collection management. Susanna has a B.A. from SUNY Oneonta (NY) and a Masters Degree in Medieval Studies from the University of St. Andrews (Scotland). A keen interest in a wide range of historical periods and topics has led her to work in a variety of cultural institutions such as university libraries, a Colonial Revival house museum and a modern sports museum. Susanna is delighted to share her experience with ALMA and is excited to learn more about Armenian heritage and culture through the wonderful collection here at the Museum. As a recent transplant from the beautiful Adirondack Mountains in northern New York, Susanna is also excited to explore the city and get involved in this wonderful community.
Anna handles all of the Museum's events and programs, processes incoming memberships and donations, manages the administrative office, and runs the Museum's website and social media pages.
Thanks to her father's military background, Anna spent her childhood moving up and down the East Coast and, consequently, grew up going to as many museums as possible. Even though her homes have ranged from North Carolina to Connecticut, Anna was born in Alabama and counts it as her home state. She completed her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Public Relations and Communication at Auburn University, and her love of museums led her to work in the Development and Event Departments at the National Infantry Museum in Columbus, GA. Outside the Museum, she enjoys attending and serving at Hope Fellowship Church in Cambridge, cheering on the Auburn Tigers, and exploring Boston with her husband Jimmy and their rescue puppy, Bodie.
