About Me

I hold a Master’s in History from Oklahoma State University and completed a thesis focusing on Advocacy of the American Eugenics Movement, specifically on the roles of whiteness and Othering to advance the cause of Eugenic fitness.

I completed a Ph.D. at Oklahoma State University with coursework in Public History, Early Modern Europe, and a primary concentration Nineteenth-Century United States history.  My dissertation and forthcoming manuscript examine the relationship between regional identity, economic development, and slavery in fostering anti-immigrant sentiment in Louisville, Kentucky in the years prior to the outbreak of the American Civil War.

I teach American History and other Special Topics courses at the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics in Oklahoma City.
