I am the Special Collections University Library Associate for the Hatcher Graduate Library during the 2011-2013 academic years. In addition, I’m currently pursuing an M.S.I. from the University of Michigan School of Information with a concentration in Archives & Records Management (ARM).
I earned my bachelor’s degree in History from Yale University in 2009. My senior thesis focused on the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921, which afforded me a travel stipend to conduct archival source research at the University of Tulsa’s McFarlin Library. Also during my time at Yale, I worked at the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library as a Manuscript Assistant and at the Yale Manuscripts & Archives Library as a Student Archivist. Before coming to Michigan, I worked as a Research Archivist at the Maryland State Archives in the Legacy of Slavery Division. In my spare time, I enjoy football, film, and food!
I provide reference services in the Special Collections Library and the Information Center. I also assist in the developlment and execution of special projects, such as implementing an archival collections management system for Special Collections material.
