Having completed my Bachelor’s degree in 2022 at the University of Victoria, I am now pursuing my Master’s degree in History at Queen’s. I am interested in historicizing public history and examining how representations of historical knowledge have influenced identities. Working under the supervision of Dr. Caroline-Isabelle Caron, my studies will build upon my earlier research around the roles of museums and how the public has historically engaged with "the past" within exhibit spaces.
I have spent the last year working as a Collections Technician at the Royal BC Museum where I helped to catalogue and pack various collections in preparation for the museum’s move to a new Collections and Research Building. Prior to this work, I was a Heritage Interpreter with Parks Canada at a National Historic Site.
