“Bainbridge Island Museum of Art provides an exciting opportunity to continue to serve the Bainbridge and west sound communities," Saltrones said.
"As a growing institution, [the museum] will make use of my entrepreneurial and operational experience,” she added.
Saltrones is a third generation Bainbridge Islander with more than 25 years of experience in business and 15 years of work in nonprofit organizations.
Most recently, Saltrones volunteered as the public relations and communications chairwoman for the Bainbridge Rotary Auction and is a founder of Kitsap Tilth. She has also been president of the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island, and is a member of the board of directors of Kitsap Tilth and Sustainable Bainbridge.
Her background in business includes a stint as principal of Sands Avenue Consulting, which provides consulting services to education publishers, and she was previously co-owner of JSL Communications and Lockert-Jackson and Associates, Bainbridge Island-based distance-learning firms that specialize in workplace training for public safety occupations. Saltrones was also business manager for Northland Cable Television.
Saltrones earned a bachelor's degree in media studies from the Evergreen State College.
The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art is currently in its second phase of construction, and museum officials said the building is 42 percent complete. Two classrooms, the auditorium and administrative space opened a year ago.
