REU intern

May 2018 - August 2018 Washington, DC
“It was a really great experience to be a part of a professional anthropology research lab. Also there were plenty of opportunities to learn about the other disciplines the museum has to offer as well as meeting staff and researchers who work behind the scenes to create all of the magic the museum offers to it's guests”

Administrative ass

June 2019 - August 2019 Washington, DC
“I really enjoyed getting to do graphic design work, the opprotunity to visit the archives and view materials that weren't on display and the increased access to the private collections. I also got to facilitate large events for other interns across the institution.”
