About Me

I have a Master’s in Public History with a Certificate in Non-Profit Management from Villanova University, and a Bachelor’s (cum laude) in History from the College of William and Mary with a Certificate in Early American History, Material Culture and Museum Studies. I have completed internships with Colonial Williamsburg, the National Constitution Center, For my first graduate assistantship project at Villanova, I worked on the Last Seen: Finding Family after Slavery project, an open-access digital database of ads placed by former slaves after emancipation. For the 2017-2018 school year, I served as the Graduate Fellow in History Communication with the Albert Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest.  At the 2018 Omohundro Conference, I presented the paper “Diamonds and Pearls, Virtuous Women and Viragos, and Tender and all Too Visible Breasts: The Politics of Female Dress in Washington D.C., 1800–1820,” which I am currently under tentative contract with the University of Press of Kentucky to turn into a full length manuscript.
