What I do at the Chazen: Assistant Editor

When I started: September 2019

First memory of the Chazen/LVM: I took a survey of Western art history in L140 of the Elvehjem building as an undergrad. I used my mom’s art history study cards from one of her art history classes (also at UW) that she’d taken when she was an undergrad here in the 1960s.

On Saturdays you’ll find me: At the farmer’s market during the season. If it’s cold outside, I’ll be snuggled up with my dogs on the couch.

My alma mater: UW–Madison

My college major: BA in psychology; MA in journalism

My favorite artwork at the Chazen: I love Our Good Earth by John Steuart Curry because it reminds me of growing up in Kansas.

My favorite museum other than the Chazen: The Victoria and Albert in London

My hobby/pastime: Scuba diving

Most unusual job: Working the carnival circuit in Australia
