    Major: Art and Art History and Anthropology

    Currently, I am a conservation technician at the Library of Congress. I work with the conservators and preservation specialists at the Library to conserve and preserve items from the collection. I've worked on everything from assessing early Mesoamerican collections, to stabilizing a jumbled box of captured WWII Nazis broadcast transcripts, to treating an early 1950s neon movie poster.

    Favorite Class

    Fondest WC Memory

    Going to Maria Falzone's Sex Rules Stand-Up at my freshman orientation and every orientation after as a peer mentor!

    Don't be afraid of reaching out to people and asking questions, you can't make connections without putting your foot forward. The worst that can happen is they don't respond, but in my experience most are happy to help.
