Assistant Director of Operations


What inspires meSarah Samson

I am inspired by the unique way museums help people within a community to connect and be inspired themselves. I’ve seen and personally experienced magical moments within museum walls. My goal is to do what I can to help everyone have moments like that.


I have a bachelor’s in Anthropology and a background in archaeological field work. I earned my master’s from UW’s Museology Graduate Program in 2005. After that I worked as Collection Manager and Curator for the Renton History Museum for 16 years. During that time, I also served as a guest faculty for Museology teaching the History collections lab. I am now looking forward to serving Museology in a new way as Assistant Director of Operations.
