I am passionate about the field of Art History and CAA has always been an integral component to my professional markers for success. I have been a part of CAA since I was an undergraduate Art History major and continue to be an engaged member who holds an Associate faculty position. I have participated in many aspects of the conference from volunteer room monitor, to presenter and chair of sessions, and now as the Chair of the Annual Conference Committee. My interest in working with CAA is to support diversity and inclusion, as well as accessibility. As ACC
Chair I have been privy to the inner workings of the organization and have come to learn about the potential impactful role of the Executive Board Members. I am motivated to shift from the ACC to the Executive Board where I hope to bring my three years of putting the conference
together at the submission level into conversation with the rest of the organization’s inner workings. I am eager to engage in broader aspects of CAA and to offer support in building financial stability and strategic planning, as well as policy development. In particular, I am keen
to seek ways to intersect with CAA committees and membership with the hope to grow and develop them both. I believe my personal professional experiences as a curator, scholar, teaching faculty, art administrator, project manager and in funds development offer transferable skills that will benefits my work as part of the CAA Executive Board.
