I am Curator of Manuscripts at the William L. Clements Library.

I began working in the Manuscripts Division of the Clements Library in 2002. I became Assistant Curator of Manuscripts in 2009 and Curator of Manuscripts in 2013. I obtained my M.S.I. degree from the University of Michigan’s School of Information in 2009, with a specialization in Archives and Records Management. I earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of Michigan in 2005.

As curator, I manage the various operations of the manuscripts division. My responsibilities include collection development; grant writing; the oversight of grant-funded projects; reader assistance; library, university, and professional committee work; class presentations about the Library’s primary source materials, and writing articles for publication.
