About Me

A headshot portrait of Sasha Griffin
I am a professionally trained archivist with ten years of experience in college archives, special collections, and museum archives. 

The bulk of my career has been spent managing small, private academic repositories and performing a variety of duties, such as archival literacy instruction, grant proposal writing, cultivating donor relations, records management, archives administration, collection development, cataloging, and team management. I am an "ideas person" who loves conceptualizing ways to creatively solve problems. My professional mission is to tell meaningful stories about archival materials and its value.

I live in Central Ohio with my husband, two children, two dogs, and a ferret. I am the University Archivist and Special Collections Librarian at Denison University. I have a B.A. in History from Capital University and an M.L.I.S. from Kent State University's School of Library and Information Science. While not at work, I enjoy knitting and playing video games.
