Julia earned her B.A., double majoring in Education and Human Development, and her M.A. in Museum Education from Tufts University. Prior to joining NEHGS, Julia worked with the Minute Man National Historical Park to research and re-interpret site-specific artifacts relating to Case Whitney, a formerly enslaved African man living in Concord, Massachusetts. As a researcher with our 10 Million Names project, Julia hopes to make research spaces more representative of diverse groups of people and to inspire the local community to engage with their history, to embrace the future more fully.
