After 15 years of historic restoration in tile and stone work, I returned to get my MA in US History in 2009 at Western Carolina University, focusing on Cherokee studies and Native American preachers. At UGA,as a student of Claudio Saunt and Reinaldo Roman, I have expanded my research to include British Carribean colonies. I focus on Moravian missions, and their interactions with Indians, slaves, and runaway slave communities, using musicology as a historical lens.
