B.A. History, University of Minnesota, 2010
I am a graduate student in the Historic Preservation program at the University of Maryland's School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation. I graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2010 with a B.A. in History and minors in Art History and in Design. Historic Preservation is my way of fulfilling a desire to work more closely with the built environment while still putting my knowledge of history and art history to good use. My hope is to take what I learn from my experience at Maryland and help save historic structures by making them work for our contemporary needs. I believe these types of adaptive reuse projects will create more interesting and diverse urban landscapes.
B.A. History and Literature, Harvard University, 2006
I am pursing a duel degree in historic preservation and architecture and am interested in the politics of historic preservation as well as the role memory can play in how we make design decisions. I am excited to explore these interests through HiPO events.

B.A. History, UMUC, 2009
I came to the historic preservation program after spending many years working in the medical field. However, I always maintained a constant love of history, historic places, and space. Coming to the graduate program has allowed me to further develop my interests while gaining the skills to transition into a new career. I would ideally like to work directly with historic resources, potentially as an historic site historian or manager, or with a firm that specializes in cultural resource survey and assessment.
B.A. Psychology, Goucher College, 2009
I am a graduate student in the Historic Preservation Masters Program. I graduated from Goucher College in 2009 with a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology. I am currently interested in promoting public awareness in the use of historic preservation as an economic intervention strategy as well as a mechanism for community organization and education. As a HiPO officer I plan to encourage student dialogue and participation by assisting in planning and implementing social events for the on-campus preservation community.
