Bio

I am the Program Assistant of the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund, the National Trust's multiyear initiative to identify, elevate and support the voices, stories and places of African American activism, achievement, and community. 

I was the 2014 National Trust Colodny Scholar and wrote my Master's thesis on “Ethnic Minority Heritage Values and U.S. Historic Preservation Significance Policy.” I was a Researcher for the White House Historical Association, where I served on the National Trust’s Diversity and Inclusion Group representing Decatur House. When I'm not at National Trust HQ, you can find me at the Greenbelt Museum and Historic House fielding inquiries and managing their social media. A DC native, I also serve on the Landmarks Committee of the DC Preservation League.​ I love to talk to the public about African American history, preservation, and underrepresented cultural groups. ​​​​
