Colleen Tryner supports operations across the NJCH staff, allowing the organization to achieve its mission to serve the New Jersey cultural sector. She joins the NJCH staff after five years with the Alice Paul Institute (API), a South Jersey based non-profit focused on history and leadership. At API, Colleen held several roles, but her final title was Operations Director. In that role she managed the office workflow, bookkeeping, and site maintenance of a National Historic Landmark while being a connection point for volunteers, interns, and other community members. Colleen is excited to bring her passion for management to NJCH where she handles bookkeeping, office management, procedure development and maintenance, and database upkeep. She has always loved the humanities, graduating from Rowan University with a B.A. in History and Art, minors in Art History and Business Administration, and a concentration in International Studies. Colleen was raised in Gloucester County and remains a South Jersey resident. When not at work, she can be found enjoying board games, tending to her plant children, and enjoying time with friends!
