Brianna Victor was named the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Seminar Manager in September after Amber Bradish departed to pursue a post-graduate degree. Victor will lead the Association’s annual Summer Seminar—the hobby’s premier educational event—as well as Technical Series seminars and educational programs at the ANA National Money Show® and World’s Fair of Money®. Bradish will remain on staff temporarily to aid the transition.
“What attracted me to the position was the event planning, multitasking (juggling multiple seminars plus Summer Seminar) and getting to meet and work with so many instructors and students,” says Victor. She has extensive event-planning experience, having worked for the Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado for five years. During her tenure, Victor served as coordinator and eventually program manager for the nonprofit’s Cooking Matters® initiative, which teaches low-income families how to cook and eat healthy food on a tight budget. “The Cooking Matters positions required a lot of planning, both pre- and post event, plus working closely with educators and students,” she notes. “I believe these skills have adequately prepared me for the seminar manager position.”
“We’re thrilled to have Brianna leading our seminar program,” adds ANA Executive Director Kim Kiick. “Her background makes her a perfect fit. I know our members are going to love working with her.”
Victor most recently served as Care and Share’s USDA programs manager, where she oversaw its two commodities programs. She is a 2013 graduate of Colorado State University-Pueblo, where she earned a bachelor of science degree in health promotion.
