Beth Nevarez Historical Consulting

“History is not everything, but it is a starting point…” – John Henrik Clarke

History museums collect, preserve, and present artifacts in order to tell a story from our collective past. Businesses are increasingly drawing on their archives and histories in order to tell the story of their brand. Do you have a story to tell?

About Me

Historian & Media Professional

What makes me equipped to help both museums & businesses? A Master’s degree in history, specializing in public history, a background working in museums, historic sites, and archives, and years of experience in a corporate archives setting where I was an integral part of the media team. These experiences combine to make me well-suited for adapting traditional historical research for use in museum exhibits, but also to promote museums in today’s digital age. Also, my experience in a corporate setting means I understand how to help businesses use their past in order to tell their brand story via marketing and media.
