My research assistantship through the Center for Historic Preservation (CHP) diversified my public history experience. Most importantly, the projects I worked on developed the skill of reading landscapes. Analyzing the natural and built environments gave me another tool in my arsenal to connect broader narratives with personal, intimate memories. Additionally, my work at the CHP refined related skills related to working with communities.
With two other colleagues, I developed a heritage tourism plan for Owingsville, Kentucky. We presented our research at Preservation South.
I also developed an interpretive guide for Murfreesboro.
