I am a storyteller, abolitionist, and public historian. By day, I manage communications and trainings for a nonprofit focusing on survivor advocacy and sexual violence prevention and response.
I’m interested in the stories that we tell about the past, and what those stories mean for us today: how can the narratives we tell undermine or perpetuate oppression and inequality?
I offer consulting services in the following areas: editorial (including developmental editing, copy editing, and/or proofreading), historical research and writing, conference scheduling, event management, social media, and web development. For additional information, including rates, send me an email.
I have experience as a writer, editor, curator, educator, event manager, and communications coordinator. As an undergraduate student, I pursued coursework in environmental history, history of the medieval Mediterranean and Middle East, and intellectual history, with a minor in environmental studies. Later, I graduated with a Master of Arts in History and a Graduate Certificate in Public History from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. My fields of study included museum studies, public humanities, United States history, and global history.
In my spare time, I enjoy baking, creating and viewing art, snuggling with my dogs, and caring for my growing collection of plants.
