Assistant Registrar & Collection Coordinator, The American Museum of Ceramic Art, Pomona, CA
“Choosing a liberal arts college described my desire to focus on the arts, but not to exclude the context that other academic areas provide. I enjoyed studying Spanish and biology, and taking classes at Pomona and Pitzer. I think the Claremont Colleges are truly unique, and I am proud to have attended a women’s college. What I found most influential was that professors at Scripps practice what they preach. Their enthusiasm and professionalism as role models encouraged my aspiration to have a career and be an artist. Specifically, during my internship at the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery, the Director’s mentorship was invaluable. Now working in the museum field, I have a strong foundation in art. Scripps classes and seminars emphasized discourse and critique, which strengthened communication skills that I use every day.”
