I am a historian of early America. My research focuses on the history of age, childhood, and youth as well as the histories of gender, family, and law in the early republic. I received my Ph.D. in early American history from the College of William & Mary in 2017; my MA in American History from the College of William & Mary in 2011; and my BA in History from the University of California, Davis in 2009. I currently work as the Assistant Editor for Lapidus Initiative Communications at the Omohundro Institution of Early American History and Culture as well as an Assistant Producer of Ben Franklin's World: A Podcast About Early American History.
