Editor & Project Manager, Harpers Ferry Historical Association

I love my job.

I get to work in one of the most beautiful spots in the country, where the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers meet, breaking through the Blue Ridge Mountains to create a breathtaking scene of nature. Some of the most fascinating moments in American history happened in front of this backdrop. But Harpers Ferry is more than John Brown, more than Civil War and Civil Rights. It’s where ordinary people performed heroic deeds, and it is my honor to help share their unsung stories with the public.

I am proud to have been the editor and project manager on these publications by the Harpers Ferry Historical Association:
