Originally from West Virginia, I graduated the University of Kentucky in 2022 with a Bachelor's of Arts in anthropology and a minor in gender and women's studies. I attended the University of Galway, Ireland's archaeological field school in the summer of 2022, where I studied medieval architecture, medieval landscapes, and environmental archaeology. I had the amazing opportunity to perform phase I and phase II field work on Isert Kelley Castle CO. Galway, a tower house and National monument from the 1400s, where I studied physical and social environments in relation to Irish heritage. This experience changed my life, and inspired me to continue my education within the field of anthropology. I am currently an M.A student at the University of Kentucky, studying applied anthropology with a focus in archaeology. My research interests include Indigenous groups and environmental justice, environmental archaeology, environmental degradation on architecture, gender markers within material culture, LGBTQ+ studies, human osteology, and gender politics in the US. My goal, within my work, is to apply a feminist lens to the field of archaeology, allowing space for the application of ethics and inclusivity.
