Graduate Alumni

I graduated from the University of Georgia in 2016 with a BA in History and a BSEd in Social Studies Education.  Following my graduation, I taught 7th and 8th grade social studies for three years at Manor Hall International School in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates.  In August 2019, I returned to the University of Georgia to pursue my MA in History as well as my certification in Museum Studies, and I worked as a teaching assistant for the university's History Department.


Research Interests:

I study seventeenth- and eighteenth-century German-speaking settlements in the British Thirteen Colonies in North America.  In particular, I am interested in the cultural changes and continuities within these communities concerning religious beliefs and practices, perceptions of war and military service, gender roles, and language.  I seek to answer how these changes and continuities impacted and shaped German-Americans' integration into, and influence on, American culture.
