I have received my Bachelors in Social Studies Broadfield Secondary Education and a Masters in Public History. My educational training, as well as my internship and work experience has made me a qualified candidate for a position with a non-profit museum or historical institution. My extensive internship experiences have left me confident that I could withstand any project placed before me in the historic arena. These internships provided me with a wide array of work experience in this field including working with artifacts, designing and implanting lesson plans, as well as working with and catering to public need. My other work experience has also given me a great work ethic, as I have a stellar attendance record.
