Bio: I was born and (mostly) raised in the beautiful state of New Hampshire. In 2015 I finally graduated with a B.A in Anthropology from the University of New Hampshire. For a few years after that I worked as an archaeologist in the realm of Cultural Resource Management. As much as I loved that work I decided I needed a career change. I wanted to apply what I love about archaeology into policy and the public sector. Believe it or not there is overlap! Now I’m studying non-profit management and enjoying learning more about data management and analysis.
Why did you choose Evans? Besides the academic/program side of things, community is very important to me. I felt the admissions team was very warm and welcoming during my communications with them. The faculty are open and clearly passionate about helping students succeed. I also connected with a current student who was very candid and forthright in discussing her experience here as an out of state student which helped with my decision.
Ask me about: Going back to school after time off; changing career directions; being a first generation student; being an out of state student; entering a professional degree with a liberal arts (or seemingly unrelated) background; Archaeology; whatever you want to talk about!
