I am an archivist and historian based in the Midwest. My primary interests are women’s history, American culture, and the history of entertainment.

My job is to share the odd corners of history: the overlooked, underappreciated, and forgotten stories that deserve to be told. I believe strongly in engaging and accessible storytelling. I am currently the Genealogy Services Librarian at the Wisconsin Historical Society.
