I'm a believer in the positive power of museums to foster critical thinking, creativity, and fun–or rather, educating through creative means (also, museums are my happy place, so I decided I should build a career making them happy places for everyone else too).
I have 11 years of experience in the museum field in a variety of positions and organizations, from small art galleries to historic sites and memorials as well as national museums. My work has entailed exhibition development and coordination, design, digital assets management, and collections maintenance. In particular, I have a strong developed skillset for performing historical, collections, and archival research and organizing and disseminating information to internal and external audiences.
I most recently served as the exhibitions project coordinator for the opening of the new International Spy Museum.
