Women’s History Month at the Museum
Posted: 3/10/2017 4:27:55 PM

During Intrepid’s years of active service, the success of the ship depended on the diligence and commitment of its crew. No women served on board the ship, but today half of the Museum’s employees are women. Their work is critical to the organization’s success as a leading cultural institution in New York City.

In honor of Women’s History Month, we are celebrating the women of the Intrepid Museum—staff, members and partners—by highlighting their unique roles, diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

Susan Marenoff-Zausner is president of the Intrepid Museum. She is the first woman to hold this position in the Museum’s 35-year history. Several years ago, she oversaw the historic renovation of Intrepid, which transformed the ship into a world-class cultural and educational center. With Susan at the helm, the Museum has become a nationally recognized institution that now draws more than one million visitors each year.

Jacey McHenry is the newest member of the aircraft restoration team. Her experience in the U.S. Navy prepared her for her role at the Museum. You can find Jacey surrounded by tools in the Aircraft Restoration Hangar, where she is restoring our rare prototype Skyraider.

Ann Stegina is the Museum’s collections manager. Her passion for maritime history led her to the Intrepid Museum, where she manages over 15,000 items in our collection. Watch Ann’s profile below to learn about her favorite item related to a woman.

Dina Ingersole is an integral part of the Museum’s aircraft restoration team. Her hands-on work with our collection ensures the planes, helicopters and space shuttle Enterprise are properly maintained.

Allison Bolinger is the Spacewalk Flight Controller and Lead Trainer at NASA Johnson Space Center. She also presents at the Museum's annual family festivals, like Kids Week and Space & Science Festival.

Barbara Johnson Stemler is the Senior Manager of Access Programs at the Museum. Her team provides specialized programs and resources to support and enhance the experience of all visitors, including those with disabilities and their peers and families.

Meet mother and daughter team, Kelly and Claire Schwark. They have been members at the Museum since the space shuttle Enterprise joined our collection in 2012.

Get to know Lynda Kennedy, Vice President of Education & Evaluation at the Museum. Lynda oversees our Education Department, which develops programs for schools and teachers, initiatives and resources for individuals with disabilities, camps, community and family events, leadership programs and college tours. Her work reaches local, national and international audiences.

Thank you for joining us in celebrating Intrepid Women during Women’s History Month!
