Alexandra Rasic is the Programs and Audience Engagement Director at the Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum in City of Industry, CA, which was her local museum growing up! She started as a volunteer in 1989, biding her time as a student and preparing to get as far away from home as possible until she joined the paid staff in 1995. She is a passionate advocate for Los Angeles, historic sites, and paid and volunteer museum staff. Over the years she has volunteered at a number of organizations and worked as a freelance archivist for corporate collections in greater L.A. Volunteering for AASLH since she graduated from the Seminar for Historical Administration in 2004, she also co-teaches a workshop for the organization focused on visitor engagement and exhibits in history museums. She has a B.A. and M.A. in history from California State University, Los Angeles, and a certificate in Innovation and Entrepreneurship from Stanford’s Center for Professional Development.
