I joined the Birthplace of Country Music in 2012 as a member of the content team working on the exhibit script and design for the museum’s permanent exhibits. I then came on as a permanent member of staff in 2014, just before the Birthplace of Country Music Museum opened in August 2014. My focus is on our Special Exhibits Gallery, working to bring engaging and relevant temporary exhibits to that space. The museum hosts around two to three special exhibits per year, including exhibits created in-house or by guest curators and traveling exhibits from other institutions.

With a background in academic and specialist editing and writing, I also play a big role in all of the publications produced by the Birthplace of Country Music – from our internal business plans and press releases to museum publications and this blog! I am also responsible for the museum’s social media presence on Facebook.

I am lucky to work with such a great organization, which gives me the chance to be creative and the opportunity to learn every day. I really enjoy sharing our story with visitors, both on-site and online, and look forward to the chance to dig even deeper into the region’s musical heritage through this blog.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy long walks with my dog Pip, especially in all the beautiful places found in and around the Appalachian Mountains.
