We are proud to welcome Leah Burgin to the Haffenreffer Museum's team as our new Manager of Museum Education and Programs. Leah previously assisted the Museum as an Education and Outreach Assistant, helped to organize the student docent group MUSE, and coordinated our "Think Like an Archaeologist" outreach program. Leah has degrees in anthropological archaeology from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) and public humanities from Brown University's department of American Studies. Prior to joining our team, she was involved in developing public interpretation and museum education programs for the National Park Service, the National Zoo, the Smithsonian Institution, and the National Building Museum.
