As a kid, Eileen’s love of history was inspired by the family conversations about local and world history. Each conversation was a chance to learn something new and intriguing about the lives that shaped our communities and the world. As an adult, she is fascinated by the challenge of creating experiences and emotions that will resonate with Museum guests. She feels that museum curators are like chefs as when someone walks through an exhibit it is like watching someone tasting a new culinary creation. You soon know from their expressions if they like it or not.

She is responsible for the Daly House Museum’s day to day activities as well as curating their rotating exhibits which included The Bride Wore White and the recent Steampunk: The Victorian Art of Technology and Science Fiction. She received her Bachelor of Science in Zoology from Brandon University in Brandon.
