I am a part of an amazing team at Ancestry where we connect individuals with historical stories about their ancestors. I work primarily with coding and image curation. One thing I really love about Ancestry is how we tell truthful stories while still approaching difficult historical stories with sensitivity. Here’s a video about StoryScout™.

Keeping in Touch Without Touching Each Other: A 2020 COVID-19 Online Exhibit
In response to the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic, I, along with other curators, collected digital items related to the pandemic. I coordinated with two other curators to create an online exhibit, Keeping in Touch Without Touching Each Other.
Country Music, Women, & American Politics
For my Museums & History graduate course, I created an example exhibit about Country Music, Women, & American Politics where I analyzed the the relationship between female country music singers and United States politics. As part of my project, I created a budget, artifact list, floor plan, and marketing image (seen below). This exhibit was a dream for me to make. I would love to collaborate with someone one day to make this happen in real life. If this sounds up your alley, please reach out to me!
Above is a playlist I created to accompany this exhibit. These songs highlight country music women’s political and social statements from across the spectrum.
FamilySearch’s Guided Research™
While at FamilySearch, I worked with an amazing group to create Guided Research™. This product helps novice genealogical researchers navigate different geographic areas, giving them the best record sets to conduct research. As a member of this project, I collected record sets, created web pages, and helped improve the user experience through problem-solving.
