Graduate Research Assistant

Biography

I am a Master’s candidate in Public History at North Carolina State University, and have my Bachelor’s in History and American Studies from the College of William & Mary. My primary focus is in Museum Education, but I also bring digital and archival skills to the table.

I have worked or interned in museums and libraries regularly since the summer of 2015. I am currently employed at the North Carolina Museum of Life and Science in Durham, NC and continue to intern with George Washington's Mount Vernon in Virginia during school breaks. I am a graduate assistant with the City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation department, working on archiving and with their historic resources. NC State's program has helped me to achieve these wonderful positions and has opened the door for many opportunities, including designing an educational plan for Duke Homestead that is currently being implemented.

For the 2017-2018 school year I am serving as the Public History program ambassador, and am happy to speak with any interested prospective students!
