  • Independent Geography and History Researcher
  • National Park Service

I am a December 2016 graduate of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, having received my Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in history and a minor in geography. I am currently in an interim status between undergraduate and graduate studies, and am presently conducting studies as a research volunteer with the National Park Service at their facility in Eunice, Louisiana. My current work with NPS is to assist in the development of programs and exhibits that pertain to the history, movements, and lifestyles of Cajun settlers on the prairies of southwestern Louisiana, with particular focus around the communities of Eunice, Basile, Iota, and Mamou. I currently reside in the community of Grand Coteau, Louisiana.
