Risha Lilienthal

Exhibits and Collections Assistant

After recently moving to the area, Risha is enjoying learning about both the history and community in Albert Lea and Freeborn County. Dramaturgy, music, reading, and travel are among some of her hobbies. She spent a year in China helping teach English at a university in Zhuhai. With a bachelor’s degree in History and minors in Art History and Theatre from Bethany Lutheran College, FCHM is a wonderful place to be. Risha is excited to have the opportunity to work in a museum full of so many objects and stories.
