Emerging Museum Professional


I grew up in Northern Illinois, which is an okay place to be a goofy kid/awkward teenager if your hometown can boast a Six Flags AND the state’s largest outlet mall.

After 18 years in the Midwest, I headed east to study magazine journalism and Mario Kart at Boston University. I completed my Bachelor's degree in 2010, then scored a post-graduation internship at the Boston Museum of Science that led to a fantastic year of self-discovery and professional growth.

I recently completed my Master's degree in Museum Education at The George Washington University.
