I've been lucky to have worked with many great brands and organizations to design engagement strategies, create multimedia products, conduct audience research, build online communities, run social media accounts and manage websites.
As a current M.A. student in Public History, my aim is to bring improved user experience and digital-first thinking to the history and cultural heritage sector. In addition to coursework and my work in the field for the Longfellow House National Historic Site, Northern Light Productions, and the Humanities Action Lab, I also serve as digital director of Big Tent Nation, a civic engagement initiative, and as the coordinator for Northeastern University's Digital Scholarship Group, working to facilitate and launch digital humanities projects and exhibits. On the side, I run a history blog with my sisters, called Sistory.
Previously, I worked for several years in marketing communications at the Pew Research Center; video production at the FrameWorks Institute; and as a freelance video editor. I hold a B.A. in American Studies and Film & Media Studies from Georgetown University, where I produced a thesis on news literacy initiatives; a capstone documentary film on the changing journalism industry; and a film about the campus radio station, WGTB, where I worked as station manager.
I'm originally from Atlanta, previously lived in Washington, D.C. and currently reside in Boston.
