Ashley E. Remer
Founder & Head Girl

Ashley is a postmodern nomad, traveling the world in search of beauty, knowledge, and experience. She strives to connect the dots, make change, and support the imaginings of youth. She is especially grateful to have given Girl Museum life and make her own peripatetic vocational dreams come true.

Mercedes Pino
Board Girl


At a very early age, I would line up all of my dolls and play teacher. As a first-generation Cuban American, my parents always encouraged me to be the best at whatever I wanted to be. So I studied to be a teacher and a lawyer. Somewhere along the way I mixed the two and decided to work at a law school. Now my job is to encourage students to be the best whatever they decide to be.

Teri R. Abstein
Board Girl Secretary

Teri is a pragmatic collector and an obsessive organizer. These attributes lend themselves handily to museum work. She landed in her museum vocation almost by accident through fortuitous decisions and the faith of others. To both fate and certitude she will be eternally grateful for they have allowed her to ‘play with the stuff’ and ‘share with the kids.'


We are very lucky to have amazing and distinguished women on our Advisory Board.
