I have the privilege of being the Community Engagement Program Manager of the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library. I began my career as a Communications Social Media Intern, and after about a year, I became the Beinecke’s inaugural New Haven Promise fellow. One year later, I was promoted to a project manager and later grew into the Community Engagement Program Manager. I currently build and manage community events with local schools and history institutions to bring greater awareness to the Beinecke collections. I operate the library’s social media platforms, boost the library’s visual content, collaborate with curators and exhibition prep to create high-quality promotional content for the public, and give tours and lectures across New Haven. I would be remiss if I did not mention my appreciation for Michael Morand, Director of Community Engagement.
