“History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day.” – John Henrik Clarke
I am a public historian, an archivist, a writer, a wife, a baker, a book lover, a dog mom. I have a Master’s degree in History with a concentration in Public History from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I am currently the archivist for the Gary Player Group in Greenville, SC.
I have interned and worked at a variety of historical organizations and institutions including the Tobacco Farm Life Museum near my hometown, the Independence National Historical Park, Christ Church Preservation Trust, Preservation Chapel Hill, Cape Fear Museum, Historic Wilmington Foundation, Bellamy Mansion Museum, & University Archives at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
I received my bachelor’s degree in American History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2013. There I also minored in Archaeology and Spanish. I began my graduate work at UNC Wilmington in the fall of 2013 and graduated in the summer of 2015. For more on my education and work experience see my Curriculum Vitae or my Past Projects page.
I enjoy researching a variety of historical topics, but I am especially interested in women’s history, the history of Latin America, immigration history, and material culture. I love connecting the past to the present and helping others to make personal connections to the past.
I live in Greenville, South Carolina with my husband, our dog Dia, our guinea pig Brownie, and our African dwarf frog Webster and I enjoy reading, watching movies, and spending time with my friends and family.
