Collecting Junior Ranger badges from National Park Service sites as a youth developed my appreciation for past and sense of place. I work to improve the movement’s accessibility by empowering the next generation of community advocates and increasing representation of lesser known histories.
With almost 10-years of experience working at historic sites, I have developed a keen understanding of storytelling and connecting people to the past. I have crafted hands-on workshops, tours, successfully pursued historic designation, and executed speciality research projects.
In 2018, I was recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as the recipient of the American Express Aspire Award during the 2018 National Preservation Awards and as an honoree of the inaugural 40 Under 40: People Saving Place's list.
