Bio

I was a library nerd and then I discovered archives. Fresh out of college I was hired by the Oklahoma Historical Society during their move into a new facility in 2007.  After establishing and leading the Manuscripts Division at OHS I served as the first municipal archivist for The City of Oklahoma City where I oversaw renovations to create a records storage area for permanent documents, managed an NHPRC funded grant project to inventory the holdings and conducted records management training for city departments.
Serving in both archivist and records manager roles has given me the experience to tackle any challenge, big or small. I have found that participating in professional organizations keeps me engaged in new developments in the field while creating a network of friends I can call on for guidance or assistance. 

I am a founding member of the Oklahoma Archivists Association (est. 2017) and a member of the Oklahoma Historical Records Advisory Board. In my life outside of work I volunteer with Period OKC Foundation and the Oklahoma Mural Syndicate.
