About Me

I hold an MA in American History from Rutgers Univerisity-Camden. Currently, I am pursuing an MI with a concentration in Archives & Preservation at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. I have also received a BA from Rutgers University-New Brunswick in Africana Studies and a BA in History from Kean University. Previously, I was the Programs Assistant at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities and worked as a research assistant at the Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia.

My research interests focus on enslaved people, particularly women, in early America. As an independent research consultant, I have focused on projects dedicated to African-American history and the Black experience. My current project is based on the history and development of the African American community around Bartram’s Garden in Southwest Philadelphia.
