My museum specialities lie in managing and interpreting eighteenth- and nineteenth-century
American material culture. I believe in the importance of gaining, maintaining, and advocating for intellectual control over museum collections and using those collections and related resources to develop primary source-based programming. I have several years of experience getting to know the region’s historical treasures through my work with the IMLS-funded Sustaining Places program at the University of Delaware, at Winterthur, through my dissertation fieldwork, and more. I have continued this work in my current role as Curator at Red Bank Battlefield Park in National Park, New Jersey, and Fellow in Public History at Rowan University.
