Where are you from?
Northville, MI

What is your academic year?

What interested you in your position at the MSU Museum?
My main interest is fashion history, and I was drawn to how this position allows me to work directly with the Museum’s historic pieces – Victorian fashion in particular.

What is your favorite exhibition at the MSU Museum?
One of my favorite exhibitions from the MSU Museum was “Claiming Their Bodies: Women’s Sportswear in the 1910s.” I love Victorian and Edwardian sportswear fashion because of how different it was from typical women's fashion of the time and the ongoing influence of menswear in women’s fashion.

What do you do in your free time?
I love to find and try new veggie recipes!

What is your dream job?
Fashion History/Historic Apparel Curator
