The Road to Women’s Suffrage in Sharon (April 8– December 31, 2020)
Over the past six years, I have worked within several curatorial and collections management departments at museums across northern New England and New York.
During these professional experiences, I contributed or led projects that helped institutions develop original research and content for major exhibitions, and maintained professional standards in the preservation of and access to these museum’s permanent collections.

I am primarily interested in the American experience of creation, both for utilitarian and aesthetic ends. I am drawn to objects and art that reveal the vital, yet often forgotten stories of life in America.
Currently, I serve as the Curator of Collections, Archives, & Exhibitions at the Sharon Historical Society & Museum. In this position I serve as the head curator and collections manager for the permanent collection housed at the historic Gay-Hoyt House in downtown Sharon, CT.
Between 2014-17, I studied at the University of Vermont and received my BA in Classical Civilization and History before completing their accelerated masters program in 2019, wherein I received my MA in History. During my undergraduate and graduate years of study in Burlington, VT, I interned in the collections management and curatorial departments at the Fleming Museum of Art and the Shelburne Museum. Additionally, during these same years I also served as a clerk and researcher in the university’s Silver Special Collections, Library Research Annex & Archive, and worked as a student curator to develop an exhibition showcasing student work, while organizing the first ever Creative Arts Exposition.
Following graduation I completed a three month long curatorial fellowship at the Fort Ticonderoga Museum, assisting the curator, Matthew Keagle, with content development and vector animations for a major upcoming 2020 exhibition.
