I am a U.S. and public historian who researches histories of women and gender, labor, education, and urban reform movements of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I received my PhD from the History Department at Loyola University Chicago in 2020. My current public history projects address issues of diversity and representation in historic preservation and local history. I have professional experience in museum education, archives and collections management, and public programs through my previous work at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Newberry Library, and the Chicago Architecture Center.
I teach courses on U.S. social history and public history in the History Department at Texas State University. You can visit my faculty page here.
