After a stellar academic career, graduating Magna-cum-laud from Lafayette College and later completing the Women’s Leadership Forum at the Harvard Business School, she has worked in key leadership positions at The Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Opera, and the New York Botanical Gardens. 

In 2015 she came to Sarasota to spearhead the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens master plan. Upon completion, its aim is to become: “A world-class destination for plant research, conservation, and environmental education” all while preserving the wonderful 49-year history of this beloved institution.

My guest today is Jennifer Rominiecki, President & CEO of The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens

In this episode, Jennifer shares …

  • How Jennifer heard about the Selby opening from her home in New York and what most intrigued her about the position
  • How she leads the much-needed renovations at Selby while managing the inevitable conflict it causes
  • Why the Historic Spanish Point was brought under the Selby umbrella
  • A great exhibit running from July to September you really should attend

… and much … much … more
