What do you do?
I’m the Program Assistant for the Institutional History Division. I process oral histories in the Smithsonian Oral History Program, provide reference for researchers, work on public projects, and conduct research on the history of the Smithsonian.
Favorite spot in DC to recommend to visitors:
Once you're done perusing the monuments and museums, I always suggest a visit to the Mount Pleasant neighborhood to pick up some pupusas from Ercilia's.
I'm partial to our oral history collection, and RU 9624 Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute History Interviews is a collection of interviews with rad women scientists and administrators discussing their careers and experiences at STRI in Panama.
