When did you begin volunteering? 

April 2016

 

What drew you to volunteer at the Hunter House?

I had visited Hunter House in the 1990s and when we moved to the neighborhood, I was immediately drawn to the house because of its Victorian architecture and the overall charm of the grounds.

 

What is your favorite item in our collection?

Harriet Ayers’ sampler and the tilting ice water pitcher

 

Coffee or Tea?

Tea, of course!

 

Favorite period television or movie drama, historic novel, or both.

Poldark, anything Jane Austen, Upstairs Downstairs

 

Do you have a mantra or favorite quote?

“We’ll figure it out”

  

Name a hidden talent of yours.

I am a good proofreader

 

What has been the highlight of your time as a volunteer with us?

Getting to know (and love) all of the people who support the museum

 

Fill in the blank: When not at the museum, you can find me at a YMCA yoga class or gardening.
