Charissa is currently working as Lead Educator at Gulliver's Gate, working a team to develop educational programs for school groups, families, teenagers, and many others. She believes that museums and other cultural institutions are truly inspirational spaces for every kind of learner and she enjoys sharing all the wonderful things she is learning about and teaching about through her Instagram account @lookwhereyagoin. She is also a graduate from the Bank Street College's Museum Education Program and University of South Carolina Honor College's Anthropology Program. Her dream job? Working for SNL. 

Since 1979, NYCMER has provided a forum for museum education professionals to address issues of museum and educational interest, exchange and disseminate relevant information, and to explore and implement cooperative programming opportunities through roundtable discussions, workshops, and an annual conference.
