I am a Chicago-based public historian with research interests in American women and gender, education, labor, and urban histories of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I earned a doctorate degree in U.S. and Public History from Loyola University Chicago in 2020. My current work as a public historian centers on 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 will join the faculty in the History Department at Texas State University as an Assistant Professor of Practice in Local and Community History in Fall 2020.
