I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Guelph. My dissertation explores the relationship between food control, women, and the government in Canada during the First World War. I completed my comprehensive exam in the Fall of 2017 in the field of Canadian History. I minored in the topics of Rural and Public History.
My MA thesis explored the topic of Western Canadian identity through public dining in Alberta. Much of my training at the University of Calgary centred on the North American West, gender and sexuality, and Canadian religious and cultural history.
I am also trained in Museum and Heritage Studies and have been employed (and volunteer) as a heritage interpreter, tour guide, supervisor, and collections assistant in living history and traditional museums.
