I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in 2010 with Bachelors Degrees in both Anthropology and History. I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Public History from Wright State University in 2013. I am currently the general manager at The Oilerie Dayton located in the Greene. I am responsible for making sure our small, family-owned shop runs smoothly. I manage daily operations, inventory, our team and sales floor. I have many years of experience in research, writing and editing at a graduate, post-graduate and professional level. I am able to create professional documents, creative manuscripts, museum text panels, descriptive text and research-based material. My experience and abilities aided in my contribution to the Rotary of Dayton’s Centennial publication, 100 Years: Rotary Club Dayton. I was responsible for research, initial drafts and final edits. I have also developed skills in exhibit design, planning, research and installation; historical research, artifact preservation and conservation; archival processing; care for both three-dimensional and two-dimensional collections; documentary film research and production; Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Final Cut Pro 7; text panel drafting; historic preservation and site interpretation. My passion for reading and writing lends itself to the many hours of research I have done and will do in the future. I have developed many leadership skills throughout my career as a soccer player and NCAA Division I athlete. I continue to play weekly and let my experiences as a team participant and builder positively influence my life.
