About Me

I earned a M.A. in Public History from Northeastern University in 2013 and I am currently a doctoral student in the Department of History at the University of South Carolina. I am an Americanist specializing in women’s and gender history, the history of medicine, and American Jewish identity.

My dissertation considers Jewish women’s activism in the women’s health movement of the 1970s and uses oral histories to document the experience of Jewish activists in the feminist movement. In addition to my doctorate, I am pursuing a certificate in Women’s and Gender Studies. I am also a graduate assistant at the Office of Oral History, where I primarily work with the International Women’s Year (1977) collection.

Before coming to the University of South Carolina, I worked on public historical projects and exhibits with the Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections, the Hartford Business Improvement District, the Rufus Porter Folk Art Museum, and Trinity College (CT) Special Collections. I have also volunteered with Jewish historical societies and community literacy projects.
