Hello!

I believe that people should have the best experience possible when learning and engaging with new materials - no matter their previous experience, background knowledge, or technical skills. That's why I am passionate about helping institutions, companies, and learning platforms provide engaging and inclusive user experiences, whether through social media posts, websites, podcasts, exhibitions, or museum public outreach.

But how does one ensure that? By putting potential users at the center of everything and by executing projects based around what the user wants and needs. And, making sure that consumers see people like them in the materials they are consuming - because representation is key when it comes to being inclusive. In addition to creating a more equitable world, it also promotes new and inventive thinking that will result in a better overall experience.

I studied at American University where I completed a PhD in Anthropology in 2020. I'm currently taking UX courses to further my knowledge. When I’m not working, I can be found dancing (in the pre-COVID-19 times), sewing, reading, learning Danish, and playing with my dog. I am also a co-founder and co-host of the Women in Archaeology podcast with several of my colleagues.

Feel free to reach out!

The Women in Archaeology Podcast

Who We Are: We are four women, plus guests, who saw the need for better female representation in archaeological media and decided to do something about it.

What We Do: The goal of this Blog and it’s related Podcast is to provide information about the field of Archaeology from the perspective of the women who work in it.
