I am a Digitization Technician within the Manuscripts Division.

Background
I am a two-time graduate of the University of Michigan. I completed my M.S.I. from the University of Michigan School of Information with a focus on Digital Curation in 2020. Prior to my graduate studies, I obtained my B.A. in both Screen Arts & Cultures and Communication Studies in 2015. I started working at the Clements in November of 2021.

Responsibilities
I am responsible for cataloging and digitizing the Thomas Gage collection as part of a grant funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. At the conclusion of the project, all 23,000 items will be freely available online to further the collection’s accessibility and research potential.
