Art History and Italian Language Interdisciplinary double major and Economics minor student with a passion and work ethic for museum and gallery work. I am a hardworking, passionate and dedicated student who works well with others as well as independently. I thrive in and am passionate about learning languages and working/learning in museum settings. My career goals include traveling and translating/teaching languages as well as working in a museum internationally. I want to learn more about and immerse myself within a variety of cultures across the world. I work well and have experience in many aspects of the art world such as with databases, cataloging and doing inventory, art handling and storing, installing and de-installing exhibits, transporting, researching and critiquing art, and more.

I am the first student in the history of DePauw University to be invited to do a summer-long research project for Art History. Because of my experience, I was able to easily do research, catalog, do inventory, and set up a Post-War Japanese Art Exhibit at my University's gallery with my boss and co-workers throughout the entire summer.
I was chosen to help teach Italian Language and Culture for a three week-long Art History, Language and History of Northeastern Italy summer course for my Italian Professors because of my knowledge of Italian language and culture. Students came to me when the professors were unavailable to answer questions and teach about Italian language and culture of Northeastern Italy. Throughout this course, I gave guided tours of museums to explain some famous art pieces, and also made powerpoint presentations beforehand to give knowledge about some of the art work that was seen in Italy.
