I am in my final year of a Biology and Medieval Studies double major at Wilfrid Laurier University.  I am a huge animal lover and have owned dogs my entire life.  Pictured above is one of my dogs, Sawyer, a couple of months after I first got him.  As an avid reader and a fan of many shows, he is named after one of my favourite characters: James ‘Sawyer’ Ford from Lost.

My role as a digital editor is to…

organize historical documents and create content that is accessible to all users.  In addition, to collaborate with other creators to digitize large amounts of texts and identify areas of future work.
