I am a professionally trained archivist with five years of experience in college archives, special collections, and museum archives. My interests are in digital preservation, curriculum building, and outreach initiatives. I have a passion for instruction and working with students. I am an active and dedicated member of the archives profession, participating in numerous 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 processing and cataloging, primary source instruction, collection development, records management, digital curation and preservation, exhibit installation, project management, grant proposal writing, and team management.
Currently, I am the University Archivist and Special Collections Librarian at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. Previously, I served as the interim College Archivist at Luther College where I had also held the positions of Digital Archivist and Project Archivist. 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.
