With so many exciting projects, special events and exlusive previews, it is truly a stunning spring season at the ROM. I'm looking forward to connecting you with the programs, plans and exhibitions that matter to you.”

Since joining the Museum as President & CEO of the ROM Governors in December 2014, I’ve been delighted to rediscover all things ROM—from our stunning public galleries and world-class exhibitions to our behind-the-scenes laboratories and hidden storage areas—and witnessing first-hand the community impact of our incredible collections and research.

One of the most amazing experiences I’ve had so far was holding a three-billion-year-old fossil that will be featured in our future Dawn of Life Gallery (working title). This new gallery will tell the story of how life began on our planet and the incredible emergence of creatures from the ancient sea onto the land and into the air. As remote and distant as the creatures and the time may seem, the plants, animals and microbial life that lived hundreds to thousands of millions of years ago are part of our story. 

On June 10, 2015, Royal Patrons Circle (RPC) and Young Patrons Circle (YPC) members will be among the first to see Pompeii: In the Shadow of the Volcano, which tells the dramatic story of an ancient Roman civilization frozen in time. With so many exciting projects, special events and exclusive previews, it is truly a stunning spring season at the ROM, and I’m looking forward to helping you experience your own magical moments by connecting you with the programs, plans, and exhibitions that matter to you.
