About

I’m a child of the Pennsylvania woods cast into the Saskatchewan prairie.

I am currently a PhD candidate in the History Department at the University of Saskatchewan. I study comparative American and Canadian environmental history. A park scholar and enthusiast, my dissertation is a comparative history of Canadian provincial parks and American state parks, focusing on Idaho, Alberta, Ontario, and Pennsylvania.

I am the social media editor for the Network in Canadian History and Environment (NiCHE) and an assistant in the Historical GIS Lab at the University of Saskatchewan.

I am the editor for the magazine Folklore: Saskatchewan’s History Personified for the Saskatchewan History and Folklore Society.

We are more than our disciplines, and I hope to ramble about music and feminism and politics and such as well.
