I’m a recent graduate of the University of Mary Washington double majoring in History and English.  I enjoy recreating historical clothing, learning Italian, and rereading the novels of Ms. Austen.  I’m a capable seamstress and an avid reader who enjoys the dulcet tones of Ella Fitzgerald.   I have completed a number of internships, including historical interpretation at Mount Vernon, textile conservation at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, and online exhibit creation for the Papers of James Monroe.  My work experience during my years at UMW includes giving guided tours at the Mary Washington House, transcribing documents for the Papers of James Monroe, and being a member of the Historic Trades Department of Mount Vernon.  In the future, I hope to continue my museum work and expand my knowledge of museum collections.
