Kim Poovey

As a Beaufort, S.C., resident, popular storyteller, actress, and novelist, Kim Poovey brings local history to life through her characters from the past. Whether telling a ghost story in downtown Beaufort or appearing to as the inimitable Miss Emma Victoria Brown, she transports her listeners to the past and wraps them up in the stories she tells. After each of her programs, Kim steps out of character to answer questions and elaborate on some of the historical events that shaped her stories.

Carlos Chacon

Carlos Chacon studied tropical biology at the University of Costa Rica and earned his masters in earth and environmental resources management from the University of South Carolina in 2007. A native of Costa Rica, Carlos joined the Coastal Discovery Museum in 2005. He has managed many international and local nature expeditions.

Natalie Hefter

Natalie Hefter fell in love with Hilton Head Island while vacationing there in her youth. The Florida native earned a bachelor's in art history at the University of South Carolina, and after some course work in historical preservation, began her focus on museum studies and preservation. She parlayed an internship at the Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head Island into a full-time position in 1997. Natalie is now vice president of programs, overseeing temporary exhibits, educational programs and special events.

Amiri Farris teaches studio and fine arts at the University of South Carolina. His exuberant colors and engaging layers invite you to look deeper into the painting, revealing an energetic display of expression. Amiri has been featured in more than 50 one-person gallery shows and juried museum exhibitions across the United States, including the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., and the York W. Bailey Museum at Historic Penn Center National Historic Landmark on St. Helena Island, S.C.
