Barbara George, our Executive Director, came to the museum as a consultant in January 2008, bringing with her nearly 38 years of work experience with non-profits in programming, administration, and fundraising. She attended Long Beach State in Southern California, where she started her career in non-profit working for Braille Institute. After moving to Washington, Barb spent 34 years creating programs, administering, and fundraising for Little Red School House in Snohomish County. She credits her sources of strength as her family and the many good people in the community. As Executive Director of the Everett Museum of History, Barb envisions operations and capital budgets, which will provide a state of the art cultural museum in the core of downtown Everett serving Snohomish County and beyond. “We’ll get it done by working together.”
