Wanda Bershen was hired in 2009 by the Southampton Historical Museum to organize our first Interpretation Plan to integrate the long history of Southampton's social and economic development with our collections of 20,000 objects, 5 properties and 15 historic structures. Her wide understanding of and experience in a variety of museums was extremely helpful to our committees, trustees and staff and she gave us excellent advice also with marketing, development and education programs.
By all means call Wanda Bershen when considering a museum consultant. She is a pro and a pleasure to work with.
-Tom Edmonds, Director Southampton Historical Museum
I worked with Wanda Bershen for several years at The Jewish Museum and have always been impressed with her ability to manage complex projects; shape creative programs, overcome fundraising hurdles and tap into the right audiences to ensure critical and public success.
She is a talented and dedicated professional, who brings a wealth of expertise from her extensive work with diverse arts, cultural and educational organizations.
