As CEO of The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature (formerly South Florida Museum) and president of the Florida Association of Museums’ Board of Directors, Brynne Anne Besio is a driving force for science education in the region. As an illustration of Besio’s passion, The Bishop ignites curiosity for the limitless discovery of science and nature through a combination of fascinating public programs like think + drink/science, Stelliferous and summer science camps, standards-based experiences for school groups, engaging exhibitions and live presentations. Since Besio took the helm in 2007, the Museum has increased annual attendance by 40 percent, raised over $15 million for a new education center and doubled its budget and staff.
