One of the highlights in 2014 for me was the opportunity to coordinate programs and manage the Greater Phoenix Emerging Museum Professionals group. I've met so many amazing young professionals through this group and, even better, I've helped them to meet each other! We kicked off 2015 at Tempe's Cornish Pasty with a happy hour. I'm looking forward to many more fun meet-ups and many more connections made among this group of rising stars.
