Working at the Besser Museum is a dream come true for Kat!  Her two biggest passions have always been local history and, as a musician, promotion.  At the Besser those two hobbies come together, as Kat works to market and promote the all the great events and exhibits.  In addition she has created a new website, which she maintains, along with working with schools and educators to share the museum's exhibits with over 1,500 students each year.


This past year, one of Kat's most exciting achievements was building a historic downtown Alpena scavenger hunt!  The finished book can be viewed here.
