I’m a public historian originally from Las Vegas, NV. I’m primarily interested in community and audience engagement, as well as how museums can grow their audiences through digital tools. Over the past two years, I have worked or interned at a variety of institutions in New England, including: the Institute of Contemporary Art, The Massachusetts Historical Society, The Paul Revere House, and the Newport Historical Society.
I recently graduated with a Masters in Public History and Certificate in the Digital Humanities from Northeastern University. During my time at Northeastern, I became deeply interested in digital public history. I undertook several digital projects in relation to my classes, and also became deeply involved in digital humanities thorugh my work with the Digital Cities Research Network and the Jewish Collective Rights Project.
I attended college at Carleton College in Northfield, MN where I got my BA in History with focuses in US and Ancient & Medieval History. During my senior year, I interned with the Student Community Outreach Program Experience (SCOPE) where I taught 8th graders the tools of historical writing and research while helping the students prepare a research project and presentation based on local community history. My experience with the SCOPE Program is what convinced me to pursue public history as a career. In college, I also received the Ellen Rogers Steiff Memorial Award.
