About Me

I am a Public Historian with a demonstrated history of working in museums and institutions industry. Skilled in historical research, public history, writing, interpretive and educational programming, oral history, and social media communications. In May 2019 I earned a Master’s degree focused in public history from American University.

I am currently a historian at the White House Historical Association. Over the past two years I have worked to help launch a research initiative called Slavery in the President’s Neighborhood, exploring the lives of enslaved individuals that built, lived, and worked at the White House.
