Welcome to new staff
October 24, 2011
Please join us in welcoming three new staff members
Leon Doucette, born and raised in Gloucester, has returned to the area following his graduation from the New Hampshire Institute of Art. As the new Curatorial Assistant, Leon assists Curator Martha Oaks in the organization, cataloguing and maintenance of the Museum's extensive and varied collections.
As the Museum's new Development Coordinator, Amy oversees membership and fund raising activities. Amy has worked for several non-profit organizations in Boston and on the North Shore specializing in fund raising and marketing. She was the Director of Public Relations and Marketing at the Wenham Museum and most recently worked in Development at The House of the Seven Gables in Salem. She resides in Ipswich with her husband and three daughters.
Longtime Facilities Manager/Preparator, Paul Miller left the Museum this past summer due to health issues. We are indebted to his service. Walter Chianciola has been hired to replace him as full time Facilities Manager. Walter has worked most recently on the City of Gloucester's Custodial Staff. A Gloucester native, Walter is quickly proving to be a wonderful addition to the Museum's personnel.
