Marifrances Trivelli is the director of the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, located in the Port of Los Angeles, one of the world’s busiest container ports. She feels lucky to work in an area with not one but three lighthouses! Her favorite local lighthouse is the Los Angeles Harbor Light (aka “Angels Gate Light”) and she has published articles and given several presentations about the little-known history of this important harbor landmark. Marifrances serves on the Historic Preservation Commission for the City of Torrance, California, and is a past president of the Council of American Maritime Museums.
When not working on maritime projects, Marifrances enjoys gardening, home improvement projects, playing the piano, and kickboxing. She has a BA in Political Science from the University of Rhode Island and an MA in history from the University of Connecticut.
