Graduate Student / Museum Educator

Currently working on a Master of Science degree in Museum and Field Studies at the University of Colorado, focusing my research on how museum educators can use social media platforms to build communities of practice. Drawing from past experience as a biologist, a music journalist, and a museum interpreter, I am approaching this work with the belief that museums are unique sites in which people can synthesize disparate conceptual elements to make meaning of the world around them.
