About Me

I am currently working on my PhD at the College of William & Mary. My research focuses on 17th and 18th century women’s intellectual history.

I am currently working on a project about the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union and the suffrage movement from 1898-1920, a project which evolved from my work with the Frances Willard House Museum in Evanston, IL.

I am the co-creator of Explore Common Sense, a digital critical edition of the first British edition of Thomas Paine’s pamphlet.

Prior to beginning my doctoral work, I received my MA in Public History from Loyola University Chicago and my BA in History from Boston College.
