I have processed the collections of experimental filmmakers, riot grrls,novelists, jazz musicians, and anonymous feminist art collectives. I received my MSLIS + Archives certificate from Pratt Institute, my BA with concentrations in Art History + Writing from the New School, and was awarded an IMLS-RBS Fellowship for Early-Career Librarians in 2015. Currently, I serve as a Vice-chair for SAA’s Committee on Ethics and Professional Conduct, as a member of the Steering Committee for SAA’s Women Archivists Section, as Co-chair for the New England Archivists’ Inclusion and Diversity Committee, and as Managing Editor for the Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies. I live in North Haven, Connecticut, with my husband Eddie.
