I began my career at Ohio University in 1989, working in the History Department for seven years. I went on to spend the next 25 years in the Contemporary History Institute. In 2017, I split my time between the Contemporary History Institute and African American Studies as a member of the Asset Team to fill a vacancy. In 2020, I joined the newly formed Academics Unit in the College of Arts & Sciences Dean’s Office.
