    Kihs, who took the role of interim executive director in November, filled in for executive director Lori Mannel, who stepped down from the position last year. Prior to assuming her new duties, Kihs worked as the Museum’s development director.

    As executive director, Kihs will direct the Museum’s overall operations, including financial and long-range goals, and continue to fulfill the non-profit’s mission of inspiration, discovery, wonder, and stewardship of the natural world. Other duties include working in partnership with the city of Pacific Grove, as well as with the city’s Museum Advisory Board, on a continuing basis. Kihs will also serve as a community ambassador and as the Museum’s chief spokesperson.

    “I’m looking forward to continuing to build a strong relationship in the local community and to present the Museum as a valuable resource to Monterey County residents and beyond,” Kihs said.
