JAHA congratulates Angel Ashby, our new director of visitor services!

Angel Ashby is our new director of visitor services! She has been with us on a part-time basis as our tour and visitor services coordinator, stepping up to a full-time position recently after the retirement of Kim Baxter.

In her new position, Angel will oversee museum operations generally, as well as group tours.

“I’m excited about bringing more of what JAHA offers to the forefront, working with our historian and the rest of the staff to share with the community,” Angel says.

A native of Johnstown, she holds a BA in history from Pitt-Johnstown and has always had an interest in our region’s heritage and highlighting all our area has to offer, both to people who live here and visitors.

Please join us in welcoming Angel to her new position!
