BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Patty has a lifelong love of museums and cultural organization. She believes that museums and galleries are much more than places to store relics and artifacts. Museums serve as vital community resources that provide gathering places where thoughtful exhibits and educational opportunities co-exist, bringing communities together to learn, to play, and to delight in. In 2010 Relay and her family moved to Valdez, Alaska from Bellingham, Washington, where she was not only a museum professional but a business owner, an educator, a volunteer, a wife and mother. With a BA Art History from Western Washington University, Bellingham, Washington and a MA in Arts Administration from Goucher College, Baltimore, Maryland, Relay has over 20 years of experience working in Museums. As the Executive Director of the Valdez Museum she has strong financial management and public engagement skills. Relay has been involved with Museums Alaska for over 10 years and believes that we are all stronger together.
