I am an Assistant Professor of History at The University of Texas at Arlington, studying early America, 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, 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.

Before starting at UTA, I previously worked at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM) at George Mason University, collaborated on digital public history projects at the National Women’s History Museum and George Washington’s Mount Vernon, including the Database of Mount Vernon’s Enslaved Community, and was part of the Research and Community Engagement Team for the African American Burial Ground, A. P. Calhoun Family Plot, and Woodland Cemetery Historic Preservation Project at Clemson University.
