In my academic work, I am passionate about telling untold and underrepresented stories in US history with emphasis on the Civil Rights Movement. Within the Civil Rights Movement, I am particularly interested in the role of women and religion. I hope to pursue a career in the museum field, specifically in regard to education, advocacy, and social justice.

Outside of graduate school, I am an avid reader, Bruce Springsteen super fan, Chicago sports enthusiast, and life-long summer camper.
