I’m a child of the Pennsylvania woods cast into the Saskatchewan prairie.
I am a historian of the Canadian and American environment. I earned my PhD from the University of Saskatchewan in Spring 2019. A park scholar and enthusiast, my dissertation was 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). I am also a regular contributor to NiCHE’s website. In my position at NiCHE I manage and take pride in a vibrant online environmental history and environmental humanities community, which can be found on Twitter at #envhist and #envhum.
I am an expert in social media and digital communications. I am passionate about using digital technologies to bridge the gap between the public and researchers. I currently offer both editing services and social media consultancy services. Details and rates can be found on my website.
I am a member of the Board of Directors of Saskatchewan History and Folklore Society.
I am a board and organizing member of Girls Rock Saskatoon.
My professional leanings and personal pursuits also include, but are not limited to, feminism, social justice activism, queer politics and activism, non-traditional relationships, animal rights, urban planning, music and music statistics, etc.
