Tell us a little bit about what brought you to Special Collections and University Archives? What made you want to work here, as opposed to other places on campus?
Upon entering my graduate program, actually the summer before I even started, I was anxious to explore any learning opportunities that might be available at the Knight Library. I first came to the Beach Conservation Lab as a conservation assistant, and the lead conservator soon referred me to SCUA after learning more about my interests in special collections.
