Things to know about me:

  • As you can probably tell from the highlights, I have moved around a bit and held many different roles. Having the opportunity to learn new things is something I love about working in museums, and I am especially drawn to organizations that have a collaborative staff.
  • My dream job is to help run a medium-sized historical society/museum that serves the community not just as a museum but also as a community center. I believe strongly that the job of a museum is to create a safe space for the public to come together to learn, share, be challenged, and be inspired.
  • Outside of museums, I have also used my public history degree to conduct oral histories, research for a documentary, and act as a historical consultant for a movie script.
