Graduated: 1987


Where do you currently work?

I have been the President & CEO of Historic Savannah Foundation since December 2008.


Tell me a bit about your career?

I have been working in historic preservation for more than 25 years. I began working for the Office of Historic Properties in Frankfort, KY and in 1991 moved to Charleston, SC to work for the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  After nearly ten years serving in the Southern Office I moved to Fort Worth, TX to run the Southwest Office of the NTHP until I began working with the Historic Savannah Foundation in 2008.


How has folklore prepared you for your career?

WKU and Folk Studies prepared me with rigorous academic requirements (reading, writing and critical thinking) and it has served to sensitize me to issues of diversity and creative approaches to doing historic preservation work.
