Services

Archival Services

I am a Certified Archivist through the Academy of Certified Archivists, with a certification in archival copyright law from the Society of American Archivists. I have experience in all aspects of archival work from arrangement and description within archival standards, digital archiving, finding aids, developing archival policy, familiarity with the fundamentals of preservation and disaster recovery, records management, fundraising for preservation needs, and reference services.

Strategic & Project Management

I have a certification in the fundamentals of project management from the Graham School at the University of Chicago and have participated and led in the strategic planning of archival and library organizations. I am familiar with methods to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion in recruitment and training of staff, acquisition of collections, and policies of management and administration.

Presentations & Exhibitions

Through original research projects, I have created historical narratives of an organization's history through storytelling presentations, as well as physical and online exhibitions. I am available for curatorial consulting and content development, advising on outreach and public programming, using storytelling as a method for fundraising, and creating unique historical content relevant to a modern audience.
