Keelyn Byram, Grants Manager and 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 recent transplant from Wyoming, Keelyn began her career in the humanities with Wyoming Humanities. During the pandemic, she worked at the Johnson County Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum as a Collections Assistant before being hired at the New Mexico Humanities Council. She now serves as the Grants Manager and Speakers Bureau Manager, and aims to help bring high quality humanities programs to rural and underserved communities.

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.
Seeking to understand
who we are,
who we were
and who we aspire to be.
