Please help us give a warm welcome to our new Director of Development, Ashleigh Maggard!
Ashleigh was previously the Executive Director of @esoarts on the Eastern Shore, and also worked at the Sandler Center and Washington & Lee University in performing arts presentation. She received her BFA in Dance from George Mason and MA in Arts Administration from SCAD, where she interned with the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library & Museum. She’s served on the Virginia Commission for the Arts Board, and was a dance teacher and choreographer with the Rockbridge Ballet for a number of years.
At the Hermitage, Ashleigh is most excited to help grow exhibitions and programs, and to connect people and communities to art you can only experience at the estate. Fun fact: she loves mystery stories and collects 1st edition Nancy Drew Books. Murder She Wrote is one of her favorite shows.
