    In the past few years, Amy gave six travel themed presentations for our weekly lecture series, Museums à la Carte, and I already scheduled her for two future programs.  Each of these lectures was extremely well organized and researched.  The presentations were a creative, multimedia combination of lecture, music, and digital slide show.  Amy’s presentations are unique and well received by our museum visitors. 

    Last October, Amy gave the lecture, A Whirlwind through the Heart of Italy.  The lecture was really phenomenal.  Her knowledge, passion and interest in the subject were evident to everyone. There were 115 people that attended the lecture, which is close to double our average attendance.  The audience really loved the lecture.  I received stellar feedback from museum members and visitors. I look forward to working with her again in the near future.
