National Museum of Wildlife Art Announces Director of Development

April 8, 2019

Jackson, WYThe Board of Trustees of the National Museum of Wildlife Art of the United States is pleased to announce Suzy May as the new Director of Development. The Board has taken this action with confidence that May will be an excellent steward of the mission of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. In this role, she will be responsible for the Museum’s philanthropic initiatives.

May comes to the Museum from Lihue, Hawaii, where she served as the Interim Director of Philanthropy at the National Tropical Botanical Garden. May has a multifaceted skill set with experience in professional and non-profit fundraising, strategic development planning, financial services, administration, and information systems. This unique blend of experience makes May a valuable asset, able to lead the Museum’s development department.

May holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Art Education from the University of New Mexico, and a Master of Library and Information Science from Emporia State University.

May grew up in Jackson, and has deep ties to this place on both sides of her family. Her paternal family history includes homesteaders, the Moulton’s and May’s, and her maternal grandfather was a superintendent of the Bridger-Teton National Forest in 1950s and 60s. She is excited to be back in the valley, and on the weekends can be found hiking, spending time with family, and reacquainting herself with the flora, fauna, and geography of Jackson Hole.
