Keelyn Byram, Program Associate & Speakers Bureau Manager
I believe the work done by humanities councils, museums, and other nonprofits to foster curiosity and compassion is essential to our growth as a species.
A born-and-raised Wyomingite, Keelyn worked as a Graduate Assistant for Wyoming Humanities until May of 2020. She continued her work in the humanities at the Johnson County Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum as a Collections Assistant, and was later hired by the NMHC as the Grant Administrator for the American Rescue Plan Grant.
She holds a BA in Anthropology and an MA in American Studies, both from the University of Wyoming. Her thesis research centered on modern witchcraft and explored topics such as the commodification of spirituality, and how magic-based spiritual practice mirrors Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction techniques.
