I've enjoyed visiting museums and historic sites since I was 3 and I'm so lucky to be able to work in such a great one now. My museum education career started at the Oriental Institute in Chicago, has covered 5 different Smithsonian offices and museums, including 4 different jobs here at the Postal Museum. My academic training is in History thanks to a BA from Grinnell College and an MA from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Interests: Museums, obviously, Hiking, Biking, Singing, Laughter, and Food
Favorite museum object: de Havilland DH-4B airplane
What I like best about working at the National Postal Museum: Hearing the comment "Wow, I didn't know the Postal Museum was going to be this amazing!"
