  1. BA, Utah State University, Magna Cum Laude


I am a first-year graduate student at Penn State, interested in the early modern Iberian world, especially the Basque country and the role of women in the Counter-Reformation. I graduated from Utah State University in 2019 with an Honors B.A. in History, Classics, and Latin. I’ve previously worked on a wide range of topics including early modern widowhood, Ignatius of Loyola, and local Utah history. I have also co-curated several physical and digital local history exhibits and presented my research at a variety of conferences including the CRRS Global Reformations Conference in 2017, the Phi Alpha Theta Biennial National Convention in 2018, The 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Historical Association, and the Western Conference on British Studies in 2019. I am currently working under the supervision of Dr. Amanda Scott.
