I am thrilled with the choice of Ana and know that she will make a great addition to the excellent staff at the Brooks.”

It is an extraordinary opportunity to work with the largest encyclopedic art museum in the Mid-South. I look forward to familiarizing myself with the community and the artists in the Memphis area and its surrounding region.”
