Introducing Our New Executive Director
Stop By the Heslin House to Say Hello
Starting April 11th, the Heslin House will host our new Executive Director, Danielle Utter. She joins us after almost seven years with the non-profit Western United States Agricultural Trade Association, where she wore many hats as a Marketing, Communications, and Outreach Coordinator for the federally-funded export assistance program. She is excited about the opportunity to bring her energy, enthusiasm, and operational abilities to the service of our heritage community.
During her career, Danielle has spent time with several other organizations, including the Clark County Historical Museum, Oregon Health and Science University, Pittock Mansion and Phoenix Zoo, to name a few. In addition to being extremely passionate about museums and historical homes, Danielle also spends her time giving back to the community by volunteering with programs like the Vancouver School District’s Lunch Buddy Mentoring Program.
Danielle has a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff with a major in Arts Management (non-profit business) and an emphasis in anthropology (specifically archeology).
Our new Director took up her official duties in mid-December, and now has an office in the Heslin House Museum. Given her new digs, the house will also be open 10am-4pm Tuesdays through Saturdays, unless she has a meeting. Be on the lookout for the open flag!
In the coming weeks/months, check back to see how you can welcome her in person and updates on her progress. We know she is certainly looking forward to meeting as many of you as she can, and if you would like to say hello, Danielle can be reach by email or drop on by the Heslin House Museum.
