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 earned my PhD from the History Department at Loyola University Chicago in 2020. I have experience in the fields of museum education, archives and collections management, historic preservation, and public programs through my previous work at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Newberry Library, and the Chicago Architecture Center. My current focus as a public historian is using historic preservation and site interpretation to highlight inclusive stories in the built environment.
I teach courses on U.S. history and public history in the History Department at Texas State University. You can visit my faculty page here.
