I’ve been at the National Postal Museum since 2015. I’ve also interned at museums, including Smithsonian’s Office of Fellowships and Internships, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Chicago History Museum. I received my B.A. in history with dual minors in American and classical studies from the George Washington University. I’ve loved museums since I can remember and consider myself as a history nerd. Since joining the Postal Museum, I’ve had the opportunity to work on projects such as our Fund for Innovation and Excellence and America’s Mailing Industry.


Interests: History, museums, WWII feature films
Favorite museum object: 5c Virginia Dare President Franklin D. Roosevelt sketch
What I like best about working at the National Postal Museum: The ability to work on a wide variety of projects and my amazing coworkers.
