    B.A. Anthropology - emphasis in Archaeology & B.S. in Geosciences - emphasis in Geoarchaeology, 2005
    Archaeological Assistant, Illinois State Archaeological Survey, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Champaign, IL
    Currently I work full-time as the lithic analyst in the main office of ISAS. I identify, analyze and then co-write the reports on lithic material recovered from a variety of archaeological sites throughout the state of Illinois. I specialize in groundstone tools and archaeometric analysis. I am also a full-time student in the Ph.D. program at UIUC for Anthropology, focusing on the Mississippian cultures of the American Bottom region of Illinois and the central Illinois river valley. My M.A. is a provenance study on Mississippian celts (axe-heads) using trace element analysis.

As a Clark Fellow of Binghamton University, I also teach an archaeology course one semester each year and work with anthropology undergraduate students on their writing and research.
