Unrepentant history nerd and karaoke diva.

I currently serve as the digital media coordinator & program assistant for the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities, where I wrangle bloggers and tackle our social media platforms; and as a museum assistant at the Wells Fargo History Museum in Philadelphia. I'm the proud holder of a masters degree in public history.

Some projects I've worked on: an oral history database using StoriesMatter for the Salem County Historical Society, a collection of data on school group attendance for the education department at Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the digitization of the Balch Institute Ethnic Images in Advertising Collection at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. I also volunteer at the Alice Paul Institute in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey.

I travel when possible and attend Philadelphia Orchestra and Philadelphia Chamber Music Society concerts when possible. Plays and musicals are good fun.

In my spare time I am often silly and irreverent.

 

New York Historical Society birthday shenanigans.  

We went to see the Santa Claus and Hanukkah exhibits specifically, and while they were not quite what I was expecting (small, less involved than I was hoping), the Society was definitely worth the visit.  The Luce Center on the top floor gives visitors an amazing glimpse into the Society’s permanent collection. My only regret is that we didn’t have time to see the Children’s Museum (or store).  Next time.  

The gung-ho "Hooray New York" movie was as cheesy as expected, but honestly, less ridiculous than the movie at the National Constitution Center.  

My favorite part of the museum was probably the opportunities I had to give impromptu “lectures” to my friends about things like slavery, the industrial revolution, and Christmas.
