Collection Conservation: designing and building custom supports for fragile specimens
I am a current sophomore double majoring in American Culture and Anthropology, with a minor in Museum Studies. I hope to have a career working in museums someday. I have always been interested in dinosaurs and fossils, going all the way back to second grade, when I dressed up as a paleontologist for Halloween.
This has been my second year at the University of Michigan, where I'm majoring in Communications. Working at the museum has been an amazing opportunity where I have gotten to see so many incredible things (and tell my family I've touched a dinosaur!). Besides working at the museum, I am also a student assistant for the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program, a Michigan learning community focused on writing and the arts. In my free time, I'm an amateur card maker and I hope my future allows me to continue to be creative.
