Historic Preservation

It's been an interesting path getting here; when I first entered Penn's Historic Preservation program, I knew almost nothing about architecture or even preservation as a discipline. In these rapid and intense past two years I've learned how the passions that brought me here in the first place--a passion for places, spaces, and their layered histories--can be synthesized with all I've learned about the technical and scholarly methods that professional preservationists have been developing for over 100 years. With my passion now tethered to professional knowledge, I'm excited to start applying what I've learned out in the field!
