Welcome and thanks for visiting my site! I invite you to take a moment and look around to learn more about my experiences working at presidential sites and in the nonprofit sphere. Take some time to read my articles on people in history who have inspired me such as FDR, Pat Nixon, Eleanor Roosevelt, and more.

My Story

We all find inspiration in our own unique way. I have been inspired by history and certain historical figures since my teens. In high school, I interned at Franklin Roosevelt’s Little White House in Warm Springs while undertaking research for my senior capstone project. That brief time in Warm Springs laid the foundation for my remarkable journey.


After graduating from the University of Florida, I embarked upon a new chapter in the beautiful Hudson Valley. First, I interned at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library & Museum, doing research in the archives, assisting in curating exhibits, and managing special events. After the internship, I was asked by the National Park Service to undertake a historical restoration project at Eleanor Roosevelt’s home, Val-Kill, which was successfully completed in 2016. In the summer of 2015, I was thrilled to be hired by the nonprofit Eleanor Roosevelt Center to serve as the program assistant for the Girls’ Leadership Worldwide Program. That summer we hosted 84 high school girls from more than 13 countries!


Deciding to venture to another part of the country, I moved to California to work with the nonprofit Richard Nixon Foundation. There I gained experience working in Development, recruiting new members and managing the database. Continuing to pursue my love for history, I spent time in the research room researching Pat Nixon. I compiled two exhibits to be published on the Nixon Foundation’s website and one on display at the University of Southern California.


In the fall of 2017, I made two major decisions. One was to attend graduate school and the second was to become a freelancer. I accepted various projects such as: writing nonfiction eBooks, creating entries for a historical app, and serving as a virtual assistant. Now with a Masters degree from the University of West Florida, I am looking forward to what is next on my journey!


As a natural born go-getter, my passion has continuously driven me to expand my knowledge, experience, and relationships.
