I am a U.S. and public historian with research interests in American women and gender, education, labor, and urban histories 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 center 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 am an Assistant Professor of Practice in Local and Community History at Texas State University, where I teach undergrad and graduate courses in late-nineteenth and twentieth century U.S. history and public history.
