Assistant to the Director
I joined the Press in the summer of 2019 shortly after receiving my Ph.D. in early American history from William & Mary. I also hold degrees from Western Carolina University (M.A. American History/Cherokee Studies) and Clemson University (BA Philosophy). I’m still publishing some of my own scholarly work which focuses on the urban lives of eighteenth-century Cherokees, public memory, and indigenous archival construction. You can read my work in the North Carolina Historical Review, History Compass, and Early Modern Women. And when I’m not chasing my toddler around, I enjoy reading microhistories, nature and environmental writing, biographies of interesting intellectuals, sci-fi, and all sorts of creative nonfiction.
