I am originally from upstate New York, and after a year living in Denmark, I attended Vassar College and graduated with a degree in History and Victorian Studies. While at Vassar I focused on the history of women and children and wrote a senior thesis about relief societies and legal practices in the late Victorian period. After graduation, I moved to New York City to work in the art world, and entered graduate school in 2010 to get a Masters in Library Science at LIU and an M.A. in Archives and Public History at NYU.
Currently, I work at the New York University Archives as an Archival Assistant, where I am processing academic collections and working at the reference desk. I also have an internship at the Carnegie Hall Archives processing institutional records. While in grad school, I have kept one foot in art by continuing to work with my old colleagues, but with a more archival focus. My graduate thesis will focus on archival education among undergraduates, and I am interested in how undergraduate students use and understand archival documents in person and online.
