My past life as a communications professional informs my work in many ways. I have over 10 years of experience in the communications field. I’ve crafted campaigns and strategies for non-profit organizations, government agencies, musicians, restaurants, libraries and more. When I went back to school for my masters I became enamored with preserving history and using the value held within historical texts to inform current conversations.
We’ve all heard the phrase “the past defines the present”. When I graduated with my masters degree in Library and Information Science in 2018, I knew that I wanted to be a part of that process… “defining the present”.
In my current position, I have further expanded my perspective on the archivist profession and I am thinking critically about the culture of information generation and preservation within organizations and amongst employees.
