Paige Gedvillas was recently appointed the interim director of the Children's Discovery Museum.
Gedvillas replaced Executive Director Cathy Lowe who resigned in February.
Gedvillas left the banking industry to work on her artistic passion.
"I just walked in the door and this job was made for me," she said, describing the switch as natural.
Gedvillas has worked at the museum for five years. She started as the administrative assistant and later became the museum's manager.
At one point, she had five titles. She didn't seem to mind wearing many hats. In fact she loved it.
"I'm still excited to come to work every day," she said.
The interim director moved from North Georgia because she was ready for a change. She doesn't plan to leave Texas anytime soon.
"I like Victoria, and I'm staying here."
