Redick, who will be supporting the staff and board on a contract basis in various development efforts, has been most recently with the San Roque and Garden Street Academy. He also has had a long association with the United Boys and Girls Club of Santa Barbara and helped to significantly grow them as an organization. Redick said, “I’m excited to be working closely with the Wildling Museum community and look forward to being part of its ongoing success.” Redick’s contract is being sponsored by two anonymous donors in an effort to support the Wildling’s growth at a critical juncture with the move to a new facility in Solvang.
Jessica McLoughlin joined the Wildling staff in early December as assistant director. Originally from Santa Barbara, McLoughlin has a Masters in Arts Management from Claremont Graduate University and most recently worked at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. She has a broad range of experience in museums and nonprofits: organizing events, coordinating volunteers, inventorying art collections, managing exhibition development and budgets and more. She is excited about the Wildling’s move to Solvang and has plunged right in to help with packing, managing our marketing and supporting our volunteers.
