Claudia Wines: Northeastern Nevada Museum

Meet Claudia Wines, Director of Northeastern Nevada MuseumDirector

How did you first get into your profession?
I was on the museum board of directors. I became the interim director until we could find a real one. That was 13 years ago and I’m still here.

What is your pet peeve?
People who hold grudges. Get mad and get over it.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be?
I was raised on a ranch and wanted to marry a rancher when I grew up. I did.

What business advice would you give someone just starting in your industry?
Don’t just do it the way it has always been done. If you’re not constantly improving the situation, you’re falling behind. Shake things up.

What is the best moment of your career?
When I became a museum director. It’s the best job I’ve ever had and I absolutely love it.
