Associate Professor and Collections Manager/Museum Registrar
Kent State University Museum
I keep track of the museum’s collection (over 30,000 pieces), and I assist researchers, including students and faculty, in using the collection. Once students and faculty realize what a great resource the collection is, they frequently come back. I also work with national and international lenders that contribute work to special exhibitions.
