“We are very fortunate to have her expertise, not only in leading a team of staff and seasonal volunteers, but also because she's going to do great things with our gift shop, the Yuman Interest shop, within the Visitor Information Center," says Linda Morgan, the Executive Director of Visit Yuma. Located at the Colorado River State Historic Park, the VIC is the official visitor center for Yuma, and was awarded a 2019 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.
“Annette really has come to us at an ideal time. We are working on some exciting new uniquely Yuman items that will be available this fall in the gift shop. I value Annette's experience and the fresh perspective she brings to the team," said Leslie Fain, Visit Yuma's Office Manager.
