Hello! I'm a recent graduate of the M.A. Museum Studies program at the University of Kansas, seeking collections management, registration, and curatorial opportunities. I'm currently based in the Long Island/NYC area, but I'm open to relocating anywhere in the United States. I've worked primarily with archaeology/anthropology and federally-managed collections; however, I am seeking to expand my expertise within art and general history museums as well, especially those related to pop culture, music, film, and the entertainment industry. Though I'm most interested in collections management, registration, and curatorial work, I also hope to gain further experience related to exhibit development and education. Please see a brief listing of my work history below:


  • NCPE Collections Intern with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's Great Plains Regional Office
  • Registration Intern at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West
  • Collections Volunteer with the KU Biodiversity Institute's Archaeological Research Center
  • Collections Processing Intern at the American Museum of Natural History
  • Gallery Assistant at Ithaca College's Handwerker Gallery
  • Laboratory Volunteer for Ithaca College's Landon Hall Archaeology Lab
  • Student Archaeologist for Muhlenberg College
