Susan Millard comes to the Maryland Humanities Council with a versatile background. She brings experience as the Parish Administrator at The Church of the Good Shepherd, as well as an Office Manager at a real estate appraisal firm and an alumni association.  In addition to her administrative contributions, Millard spent time as a small business owner, director of children’s theater, and organizer of special events.

Theresa Worden

Theresa Worden brings nearly a decade of special events and gallery management experience with her from Hawaii.  She chose Maryland as her home after completing an internship in 2010 at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History-Archives Center in Washington, DC.  Worden completed an M.A. in Museum Studies at Johns Hopkins University in 2013, where she focused on collections management, exhibition development, and evaluation. Prior to joining the Maryland Humanities Council, she was a consultant specializing in the care, management, and interpretation of private and corporate collections. Worden also serves as curator for the Captain Avery Museum in Shady Side, Maryland.
