I am a history PhD candidate at the University of Michigan. My work primarily focuses on the history of medicine in the twentieth century American West, with particular interest in folk healing, curanderismo, and women's health. My dissertation, “Grandmothering Midwives: Negotiation, Legislation, and Medical Authority in the New Mexico Birthing Room, 1880 – 1950,” examines medical regulation, midwifery, and women's health in 20th c. New Mexico. I am currently a Resident Scholar for the School for Advanced Research Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellowship in Latino Studies. I am an editor at Nursing Clio and a Research Assistant for the Sterilization and Social Justice Lab with Alexandra Minna Stern. My public engagement and public history work includes contracting with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Latino to develop digital initiatives and visitor entry points into historical and contemporary content; website development and digital humanities tools that provide pedagogical and academic resources for users; and community-based history projects.
