CEO Richard Conti and Katie Gantt of the Science Museum of Virginia on Indy Media Live!
Richard Conti’s path to becoming Science Museum of Virginia Director and CEO includes stints along the way as a Navy Top Gun F-14 Flight Officer, Assistant to the City Manager in Norfolk, Executive Director of Nauticus – the National Maritime Center. Now at the Science Museum he discovered gardening while planning the Green Acre Farm project.
Katie Gantt studied English and print journalism in college, earning degrees in both at Virginia Commonwealth University. She has gardened since she was a child and the Science Museum of Virginia’s Green Acre Farm is her first time gardening/farming on this scale.
