Museum Studies Graduate Opens Consulting Firm in Norman

Jeremy Davis, a 2020 PACS Museum Studies graduate, celebrated the opening of his new consulting firm, Davis Cultural Heritage Consulting, with a ribbon-cutting April 21 at the Park on Main office complex, 3750 W. Main St. in Norman. This is the first formal office for the company, which offers consulting services for museums, historical societies, businesses and organizations.

“The new location will allow us to provide our clients with a welcoming and professional setting while also benefiting from the many professional services available to tenants here at Park on Main.”

Davis founded the company last year in response to the direct impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on the museum and cultural heritage industry. His goal was to serve smaller institutions and organizations that need professional support but can’t afford to hire staff.

“The new location will allow us to provide our clients with a welcoming and professional setting while also benefiting from the many professional services available to tenants here at Park on Main,” said Davis.

In addition to providing consulting services for museums and historical societies, Davis and his team aid community organizations and businesses in both researching and exhibiting their history through their Institutional History Program.

“Most businesses lack a professional historian on staff that can summarize and present their history in attractive displays, social media campaigns or even websites,” Davis said. “The IHP allows us to aid our clients in celebrating their own connection to the community ─ what makes them special and unique ─ helping them tell their story in their own words.

DCHC has most recently been working with former Sen. Anastasia Pittman, who currently serves as director of the Anastasia Pittman Research Institute, on its Black Seminole Project.

Davis spent 15 years specializing in the management of security firms before earning his bachelor’s degree in business leadership from Southwestern Christian University in 2017. He earned a Master of Arts in Museum Studies in May 2020 from OU. A single father of two, Davis lives in Norman and serves as a National Staff Officer in the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary’s history division.
