About Me

I joined the University of Mary in 2018 and have since taught in European and American history, world geography, anthropology, and oral communication. Since 2020, I am Chair of the History Education Program. I am currently completing my doctoral dissertation on French cinema and society in the postwar era at the University of Toronto. I also serve as a faculty mentor to Mary’s swimming team and collaborate with the State Historical Society of North Dakota’s National History Day competition. My research and teaching interests include Historical Geography, Education in History, Cold War, Memory, and National Identity.

Why I’m At Mary

I believe the discipline of History actively participates in our appreciation of the meaning of the “human adventure” throughout the ages and how it affects us now. I am deeply grateful of working with colleagues who share the same commitment and have the chance to share that knowledge with the next generation of educators.
