During her academic tenure she had the privilege of working at Syracuse University Art Museum as well as at the Everson Museum of Art. After graduation, Gray joined the collections team at The Strong National Museum of Play, where she spent 12 years caring for their collection of more than 500,000 objects dedicated to the history, study, and culture of play.
Gray was delighted to return to her roots at Syracuse University Art Museum in August 2022, where she now serves as registrar for a collection of more than 45,000 objects. In addition to collections care, she brings specialized experience in database management, deaccessioning, loans, photography, packing, transport logistics, storage solutions, and digitization of a variety of media.

A member of the Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists, Gray enjoys connecting with other collections professionals and regularly attends conferences and workshops to continually expand her skill set and remain up to date on best practices.
