I earned an M.A. in the conservation of historic and archaeological objects from the University of Durham, UK, and have worked as a conservator for the Institute of Nautical Archaeology in Alexandria, Egypt; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the Museum of the Aleutians in Alaska. I've been with the GCI since 2007.
