About Me

I am a PhD candidate and Gradutate Teaching Fellow (GTF) in the Department of History at the University of Oregon. My main interests are in history of the American West, particularly historic preservation, architecture, city planning, and environmental history. My dissertation is about the development of the historic preservation and environmental movements in intermountain mining towns (Butte, Montana; Globe, Arizona; and Leadville, Colorado). I have taught survey US history, women in US history, and Colorado history courses at college and university levels. Beyond my academic work, I have pursued public history opportunities, such as internships with the Public Lands History Center and volunteer work with HistoriCorps and am always looking for more such opportunities.
