About Me

My research specialty focuses on the integration of women into the US military during the Cold War, from the 1948 Women’s Armed Services Integration Act through the dissolution of the women’s service components in the late 1970s. I am currently working on a book manuscript of this research.

I moved into secondary education after finishing my PhD in 2011; I teach US and modern world history to students at MICDS in St. Louis, Missouri.
