A Brief Survey of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History

Museum Studies Intern at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History – Spring 2018

Thousands of visitors of different ages visit the Carnegie Museum of Natural History every year.

My work was overseen by Kate Sallada, Marketing Researcher, and Kathleen Bodenlos, Director of Marketing and Public Relations.

In addition to being the first woman president of the Service Employees International Union, she held positions within other unions and organizations. She was also a member of the Coalition of Labor Union Women, which was an organization of trade union women associated with the AFL-CIO.
