I am a professionally trained archivist who has worked in college archives, special collections, and museum archives. Specifically, my interests are in digital preservation, collection development, curriculum building, and outreach initiatives. I have a passion for instruction and working with students. I am an active member of the archival profession, participating in leadership roles in the Midwest Archives Conference, the Society of American Archivists, and other local and special interest library/archives groups.
I have hands-on experience with project management, grant writing, primary source instruction, collection development, records management, digital curation, archival description, web management, public speaking, exhibit installation, developing outreach initiatives, and team development.
Past employers have included the Byrd Polar Research Center Archival Program at The Ohio State University and the Ohio State Archives Local Government Records Program. I received a Master's in Library and Information Science in 2009 from Kent State University and a B.A. in history in 2007 from Capital University.
