M e e t   M a r g a r e t

 

I am an interpretation specialist based in San Antonio, Texas. I work with museums, cultural organizations, and nonprofits to capitalize on their strengths and seize opportunities. I offer range of services to support any interpretation or audience engagement need.

My Style

As an experienced museum educator, I pride myself on my thoughtful, empathetic communication and sense of humor. I have the tools and experience to lead teams through even the most difficult problems while having some fun along the way. I like to mix traditional strategies with fresh, sometimes unconventional methods of engagement. 

My Process

Experimenting and testing are my primary modes of development. I like to start small and prototype, allowing for adjustments and saving my clients time and money along the way. Projects large and small, internal and external, can benefit from engaging audiences and visitors early on in small ways.

My Approach

Really understanding your organization's goals and aligning them with your audience's needs is the best way to create relevant interpretation and a true, long-lasting engagement. I work to understand your organization and your audience to find that sweet spot where vision and expectations align.
