I am a historian of early America studying slavery, women’s history, the history of medicine, digital history, and public history. I earned my Ph.D. from George Mason University in 2020. My manuscript project, Birthing A Nation: Enslaved Women and Midwifery in Early America, 1750-1820, explores the lives and work of enslaved midwives during the eras of the American Revolution and Early Republic in Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
Currently, I am a Research Assistant Professor at Clemson University. I am part of the History department and the Research and Community Engagement Team for the African American Burial Ground and Woodland Cemetery Historic Preservation project.
