Bio and Contact

Photograph of Greg StevensI am Greg Stevens, principal of Purple Cow Career and Talent Development. With dozens of clients across sectors and over 350 professional coaching hours, I am passionate about helping people and organizations succeed.

In addition to my coaching work, I am currently the director of the Master of Arts in Museum Professions program and the Institute of Museum Ethics at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey, where I oversee a vibrant program focused on preparing students for dynamic careers in museums.

Previously, from 2007-2017, I directed the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) Professional Development program, through which I addressed career management, leadership development, and professional skills-building for museum colleagues. Prior to AAM, I held positions at the National Museum of the U.S. Army, Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums, National Building Museum, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, and Kellogg Performing and Visual Arts School. I am proud to have co-edited (with Wendy Luke) A Life in Museums: Managing Your Museum Career (2012, The AAM Press), have written numerous articles and book chapters on museum practice, and frequently facilitate workshops and seminars on career and  leadership topics. I earned my M.A.T. in Museum Education from The George Washington University and my B.A. in Theatre from San Diego State University.
