About
Setting out with a BA in history (and unofficial minor in Art History) from The College of New Jersey and an MA in Museum Professions from Seton Hall University, I followed my dream to work in museums. I have worked at small, medium, and large organizations in the NYC metropolitan area. Along the way I discovered a strong skill set in grant writing and management, as well as a love of writing and talking about art and culture. In order to pursue those interests, I founded my company - I'll Write for You.
