Ever wonder about the people behind the curtains? The ones who make stuff happen?
I get to work with these people every day. So it’s really nice to see them recognized in a big, public way for all the work they do to keep The Morikami “front and center” with the audiences who love it.
Last Thursday, The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens was one of two recipients of a county-wide tourism award, The Providencia. The honor recognizes stellar efforts to bring visitors to Palm Beach County and boost Florida’s economic life-blood.
Well, it takes a team of dedicated people to create programs, like Sushi & Stroll, Strolls for Well-Being and Oshogatsu/Hatsume/Bon, that keep folks coming back. It’s that same team that has to advertise, Facebook, work with media and keep the website booming, so people know what’s going on, when and why they should come.
Pictured below are four women on that team who made The Providencia a win for the museum this year. From the left, meet Jamie Russell, the new marketing and events coordinator; Kizzy Sanchez, marketing and events manager, and Kristina Schmidt, online marketing point person. Below them is the grand master, Director of Advancement Amy Hever.
Please give the people behind the curtain a round of applause. They rock!
