Growing up collecting Junior Ranger badges at National Parks imparted an appreciation for heritage that I carry into my work today. Historic preservation is my passion and profession. My work emphasizes building community understanding of preservation and ensuring the built environment is conducive to contemporary living while respecting the past.
I am the Chair of the Young Ohio Preservationists, a Heritage Ohio board member and Co-Leader of the Rust Belt Coalition of Young Preservationists. In 2016, I founded the Tiny Jane Project, which inspires people to learn about the history of preservation and planning through hand sewn Jane Jacobs dolls; the Tiny Jane Project is an international success and has developed a scholarship program for emerging professionals.
