I am currently working with the Las Cruces Museum of Art as a Studio Programs Coordinator where I work closely with artists and the community to facilitate learning. I was previously at the museum as a Collections Assistant where I completed research on artists and working towards making the online database more accessible to future researchers.


I found my love for working in museum collections and archives through working in the archives at Arcadia University while I was working on my BA in Cultural Anthropology. I worked from the ground up on a small collection where I did research, rehoused objects, and created mini exhibits with the objects for the university. I then continued to enjoy researching at Brunel University London where I earned my MSc with Merit in Psychological and Psychiatric Anthropology. I am now working on my Museum Studies Graduate Certificate at New Mexico State University.
