About Me

After earning my Ph.D. at Northeastern University in 1999, I moved to Grand Junction, Colorado to what was then a small, public, liberal arts college. I have a 4/4 teaching load, but continue to pursue my research.

I am currently working on a manuscript entitled, “Liberty and Insanity in America, 1750-1810.

I am a writer for Nursing Clio where I write both about my 18th century research and about LGBTQ issues.

Last year, I started an LGBTQ oral history collective in Grand Junction called “Common as a Nail” to preserve the voices and stories of people in the rural west.
