Corinne Wolffe has been selected as the Kids Discovery Museum’s new executive director after serving eight months as the interim leader.
“Through uncertain times she has proven herself to be a steady, graceful and innovative leader,” said Erin Moydell, KiDiMu board president.
Wolffe previously worked with Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum in Illinois to develop fundraising events and strengthen donor engagement, including the creation of an advisory board to support and further the museum’s mission. Wolffe has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and special education. She taught internationally and in the Midwest before shifting her focus to nonprofit work.
“I am blown away by the support and enthusiasm for the work we are doing this year. As a parent and an educator, I know the importance of early childhood education. As parents, we joined KiDiMu on our first trip to Bainbridge Island before we even selected this community as our home three years ago. I am excited to steward this vital organization as we look to the future and examine what it truly means to be a children’s museum and serve our community moving forward,” Wolffe said.
Wolffe is the Bainbridge Island School District PTSO Coordinating Council president and the National Director of Province Collegiate Chairs for Alpha Chi Omega Fraternity. She previously served as Ordway’s PTO president and KiDiMu’s development director.
KiDiMu, just steps from the ferry, is the only children’s museum on the Kitsap Peninsula and is a nonprofit experiential learning center. Founded in 2003, the museum provides a destination for children and their caregivers to explore art, science and culture through hands-on exhibits, daily art projects, cultural and scientific programming serving over 35,000 visitors annually.
