Education and Certifications

I am a UCO alumnus from the College of Fine Arts and Design. I studied global art and visual culture as a way of understanding history through art, culture and context. I also have an associate degree in art from Rose State College, and I attended one semester abroad at the University of Lodz in Poland. Currently, I am in a graduate program for museology in my final year at the University of Oklahoma-Online. 


Prior to working here, I worked for the Metropolitan Library System. In 2018, I worked with the museum curator at the Muzeum Sztuki MS1 in Lodz, Poland, for a semester internship. I put myself through college working as a server/bartender, which I believe gave me valuable skills to use in all walks of life. As a student, I exhibited in symposiums for art history and presented at Oklahoma Research Day, and National Council for Undergraduate Research (2017).
