Alumni Profile

As the Director of Events at the Kemp Auto Museum in Chesterfield, there’s one question that Lisa Roberts, ’06, is used to fielding: what kind of a car does she drive?

“My clients ask me that all the time,” she says with a laugh. “It’s a 2012 (Jeep) Grand Cherokee.”

And her dream car? Well, she’s rather partial to the 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing that’s part of the museum’s impressive collection.

The Kemp Auto Museum , which was founded in 2005 and opened in 2006, focuses on early Mercedes-Benz vehicles, though there are many other well-known cars like a 1973 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow in the collection. The museum explores at the lasting influence of European design and technology on subsequent generations of cars.

Roberts, a St. Louis resident who studied earned her bachelor’s of marketing at Maryville, is responsible for the museum’s publicity and coordinating more than 100 special events a year.
