I am an experienced public historian and archivist, dedicated to the collection, preservation, accessibility, and interpretation of material culture. Proven experience in archives and museum work includes leadership in collections care and development, exhibitions, digital resources, outreach to all audiences, oral histories, and the fundraising and administrative work necessary to support these efforts. I am passionate about the discovery and interpretation of often unknown histories, encouraging understanding and connection. I am committed to expanding a culture that honors history by actively acknowledging its significance and relevance in ways that are accessible to all.
