Design Historian

I'm a design historian and I research early modern musical instruments and Japanese food design. I'm fascinated by the ways in which gender informs the use of designed objects, and how histories of technology affect our attitudes towards makers and innovation.

Royal College of Art

Master of Arts, History of Design

Studying at the RCA was absolutely a dream. I loved being a history student at an art and design school, and had free roam of so many amazing resources in London. One day I searched "Napoleon" in the Victoria and Albert Museum database and found a Louis XVI harp; a year later I was in Paris researching harps for my dissertation, and I haven't looked back since!

Royal College of Music Museum

Volunteer Research Assistant

I had worked with the RCM Museum throughout my M.A. for my dissertation research, and when they closed the museum for a three-year refurbishment, I decided to volunteer as a research assistant to become more familiar with instrument museums and their collections.

Hilliard University Art Museum

Intern & Administrative Assistant

I began as a volunteer in October 2013 at the Hilliard Museum, assisting the Registrar with collections management. I was then hired as an administrative assistant and managed memberships, museum giving, and served as a personal assistant for the Director. Without my short time at the museum, I might not have been inspired to join the History of Design course in September 2014.

Broussard Poché, LLP

Clerical Assistant

At Broussard Poché I worked with a team of four to digitize client tax records during the off season in order to make the office more environmentally friendly. I also served as Chair of the newly created Social Media Committee and created content for the firm's new Facebook page to help them interact with current and potential clients on a more informal platform.

Gibson~Gruenert, PLLC

Receptionist

My first position after college was as a Receptionist for a legal firm. This was where I learned firsthand how to manage demanding clients (and attorneys). I supervised two office Runners and became an expert in Amicus, a client database and timesheet management program for law firms.

Louisiana State University

Bachelor of Arts, History

I've always been fascinated by history, and at LSU I was able to study non-Western history and the history of things in depth; my favorite courses were Pre-Modern Japan and Architectural History. I finally focused on Modern French history since I had always been fascinated by the Revolutionary period and Napoleon, especially ships, clothes, and furniture!
