At NYBG, I researched and developed content for signs, audio tours, and mobile experiences for permanent collections and special exhibitions. One app that I helped produce, Wild Medicine, won the 2014 Gold MUSE Award from AAM. I also led the writing of a successful proposal for a $150,000 Museums for America grant from IMLS.

My classmates at Columbia’s Program in Museum Anthropology and I collaborated to create installations on campus featuring material from excavations at Seneca Village in Central Park as well as the history of the Anthropology Department. I served as the class educator.
As a member of the Newark Museum’s internship program, I assisted the Curator of Natural History with management of the bird and fossil collections. I also planned the layout of an outdoor garden for an exhibition on healthy eating.
