Chief of Operations

Since 2016, Jennifer Ortiz has served as the Museum Services Manager for the Utah Division of Arts & Museums (UA&M) and oversees the state’s Museum Services Program and staff, which provides ongoing support, technical assistance, and professional development opportunities to the state’s 250 museums. A 2011 graduate of the Museum Studies Program at Tufts, Ortiz also recently completed the Getty Leadership Next Gen Program. She co-administers the StEPs-UT Pilot Program, a partnership between UA&M, the state humanities council, and the Utah Division of State History. Using AASLH’s Standards and Excellence Program for History Organizations (StEPs), this pilot effort offers seven small museums and local history organizations in Utah a two-year enrichment opportunity. Ortiz is a member of AASLH’s Field Services Alliance.
