Hayley Noble is the Curator at the Latah County Historical Society. She moved to Moscow in July 2021, after working at the Old Idaho Penitentiary for two and half years. She holds a Master’s Degree from Boise State University in Public History, with an emphasis in military history. Since starting at LCHS, she has prioritized the collection, doing much-needed deaccessioning and evaluating the current policies.
Alisha Tietjen has been at the Museum of Rexburg: Home of the Teton Flood Exhibit for the last five years, starting first as an volunteer and working up to assistant curator to becoming the curator in 2018. Growing up in a small rural Idaho town, gives her an unique understanding of small historical society museums and their impact on their communities. During her time at the museum, Alisha has helped to implement collection policy and procedures to help her museum to better assess and know their collections.
Nicole Inghilterra is the Capitol Curator and Museum Registrar for the Idaho State Historical Society. While she began her museum career digitizing costumes for the Idaho State Museum virtual artifact catalog, Defining Style, Nicole has been knee deep in policy for the past year! Nicole also serves as the Board Secretary for the Registrar’s Committee-Western Region, which works in cooperation with the Collections Stewardship Professional Network of the American Alliance of Museums. She loves diving deep into the “why” of what we do to preserve and make accessible our essential collections.
