Hello! I am an emerging museum educator living and working in Philadelphia. I recently earned my M.A. in museum education from The University of the Arts where I wrote my thesis on adult learning with participatory gallery activities. I graduated from Slippery Rock University in 2018 with a major in history and minors in art history and anthropology (check out my blog post about it!). I’m looking forward to my post-graduate life in a city full of personality and opportunity.
I began sharing an appreciation for art with my peers when I put together my own bulletin board about Claude Monet in the second grade. My involvement in museums came later when I was sixteen and applied to be a gallery guide. Once employed at the Corning Museum of Glass and busy with youth tours I realized that museums were where I wanted to pursue a career. Throughout my time at Corning, the education department captured my attention and I discovered a love of teaching others. Museums have the ability to provide learning opportunities for populations from diverse backgrounds and through working in non-traditional educational organizations, I hope to provide learning experiences for people that may not normally have equal access to them.
