Meet Us : Jennifer

Jennifer : Buyer/Product Developer- Glass, Souvenirs, Apparel, Holiday, Children's Items

How would you describe yourself?
More than anything, I'm an optimist.

What is your favorite item you've developed for the Museum Shop?
I developed a drinking glass for a Lichtenstein exhibition that had a picture of a glass on it. It was different than our usual souvenir items and it turned out to be really successful. It's fun when you take a risk and it pays off.

What have you learned working at the Museum Shop?
Probably how to juggle a lot of projects at once. We're lucky to work with a really diverse group of customers, art loving locals, tourists, and people just looking for unique items. Trying to satisfy all of those different groups is challenging, but it makes my job interesting.

Who is your favorite artist?
I am really bad at choosing favorites, but I've always loved Warhol. He has such a wide variety of styles and mediums. Plus I love pop culture.

What do you do when you aren't working?
Spend time with my family. I have a toddler so it's fun taking her around town or even just going for a walk in our neighborhood to the local park.

What are your top 10 favorite holiday items?
We have a really great selection of holiday items. These are my current favorites.
