    Karla Rasmussen

    Education and Public Programs Coordinator

    Karla credits the influence of her late aunt for inspiring her with a love of history and museums at a young age; she and her younger sister would spend a week with their aunt in Winnipeg exploring numerous galleries and cultural locations each summer.

    Originally from a small town in west-central Manitoba, Karla grew up in her family’s funeral home business. After completing the Visual Communications course offered through her vocational high school, she went on to become the fourth generation of her family to work in the funeral industry, where she found her niche in creating custom memorial designs in their monument sales office.

    Moving to Moose Jaw in 2008, she explored several diverse careers where she was able to use her education in developing graphics, campaigns, media relations, promotional and fundraising materials for local non-profit organizations. In the fall of 2016, she accepted a position at the WDM Moose Jaw as the Education and Public Programs Coordinator.

    When she’s not in the office, she enjoys traveling, camping, photography and exploring the back roads with her family. Karla volunteers with the Moose Jaw Humane Society’s new building committee, and has enjoyed her work as a judge for Heritage Saskatchewan’s Virtual Heritage Fair for the last few years.

    Karla’s motto is “life is too short for boring clothes” and relishes the opportunity to dress up in period-appropriate costumes for the educational programming at the WDM. She thoroughly enjoys her job developing events and programs, talking with students and meeting visitors from around the world. Karla is a strong believer in the Museum’s vision of “a Saskatchewan where everyone belong and histories matter”, and works hard to help make the WDM a welcoming place for all.
