About Me

B.A. in History with concentrations in Women & Gender Studies and International Studies from Rowan University, 2017.

M.A. in American History from Rutgers University Camden, 2019.

Digital Media Coordinator for the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) @ Rutgers Camden.

Interested in public history, archive, and museum work–I strive to make history accessible and enjoyable to those outside academic circles! Previous research projects include women and the Spiritualism movement in 19th c. America, painter John Singleton Copley’s life in colonial Boston, a state of the field study in maritime preservation, and the causes and consequences of British naval impressment in the American colonies.

Current project: The Flying Saucer Age of the 1950s and the modern creation of UFO mythology in America.
