Worked for Rose Fortier, Digital Projects Librarian:
The Master of Music (MM) and Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program at UW-Milwaukee is one of a small number of such programs in the United States. It is a collaborative effort between the Music Department of the Peck School of the Arts and the School of Information Studies. During the course of my studies, the Music Department awarded me the in-house Esther Claire Waldheim Memorial Scholarship. I wrote my Master's Thesis on the life and works of the nineteenth-century New Orleans composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk. At the same time, I completed the requirements for an archival concentration with my MLIS by performing fieldwork at the Milwaukee Public Library (see Experience).
Activities: Hillel (active throughout tenure)
