Patrice Galterio hired as Acting Director

The Kent Historical Society is pleased to announce the appointment of Kent resident Patrice Galterio as its acting director.

Patrice joined the KHS staff in September 2017, replacing long-time assistant Lyn Stirnweiss, who resigned to devote more time to her job at the Kent Chamber of Commerce. Patrice took on her new role as acting director in March, taking over from Brian Thomas, who resigned from his role as executive director after serving for three and a half years.  

Patrice was a founder and the creative director of the Kent Film Festival with her husband, Frank Galterio. She is a graphic designer and continues to do freelance work for clients part-time. She looks forward to helping guide the Historical Society in her new role.
