Williams is originally from the Santa Ynez Valley where she attended Solvang School and Santa Ynez Valley Union High School. She earned her BA in the History of Art and Visual Culture at UC Santa Cruz, graduating with double honors and Phi Beta Kappa. Williams also interned at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Williams has worked in the wine industry for the past 13 years, including a decade at The Wandering Dog Wine Bar in Solvang, which she co-owns with her husband and in-laws.

"After graduation, my plan was to start working in a museum and one day become a curator of art," Williams said in a release. "But I also wanted to move home to the Santa Ynez Valley rather than a big city. I am thrilled to now be able to do both, and am having a great time learning more about the area's Danish heritage while also getting to work with contemporary artists."

The Elverhoj Museum of History and Art is located at 1624 Elverhoy Way in Solvang. For more information, call the Museum at (805) 686-1211 or visit elverhoj.org.
