Emerging Museum Professional with an interest in archaeology, history, music, theatre, and, of course, travel. I grew up going on family road trips to various destinations in the United States, visiting many state capitol buildings along the way. I travelled abroad for the first to go on a mission trip with my family to Tanzania. While in undergrad, I participated in short term study abroad experiences in France (French), Tanzania (Tanzania and the Global AIDS Crisis), Israel (Archaeology and Middle Eastern culture), and England (British literature). As a graduate student, I had the opportunity to intern at house museum villa in Italy.
