This summer, MTS welcomes two new team members and two returning friends to our diverse staff.
Kathy McKenna has taken the position of part-time Administrator. She comes to MTS after eleven years as the Assistant Town Clerk in Andover. In addition to being a seasoned manager of large-scale projects and re-organizations, Kathy has a background in Law. On her days off, Kathy is dedicating herself to writing a novel.
Our summer intern, Trevor Lamb, is a rising senior at the University of Maine in Orano, where he is majoring in Anthropology. He has a wide range of experience in archaeology, and is especially interested in archaeological textiles. Trevor has just returned from a semester spent at the University of Bermingham in the UK.
Courtney Jason has worked with MTS since 2010, when she began an Knowledge Management internship. We quickly stole her and put her on the thangka conservation team in preparation for the Mead Art Museum exhibit. Since then, Courtney has been a key player in many of our most important projects, with her specialties in tapestry, flags, and large-scale mounting. Courtney will complete her ALM in Museum Studies at Harvard Extension School in 2017.
Janice Williams and Camille Myers breeze have been colleagues since 1997, when they both worked at the Textile Conservation Center of the American Textile History Museum. Since then, Jan has emerged as a top-notch curator, managing projects and personnel at the Buttonwoods Museum in Haverhill, MA. A passionate knitter, milliner, and textiles instructor, Jan is never far from her love of fibers. She is currently assisting with production of Andover Figures.
