Cultural Worker + Writer + Administrator


I am an independent cultural worker, writer, and arts & science administrator with a master's in arts administration from Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) and six-years’ experience in arts and culture.

My area of interest is media and experimental art that overlaps with science and technology. However, I love art in general, and science too, because cross-pollinating ideas from different fields bears a greater understanding of the world. I also have an inquisitive mind for redefining healthcare through self-tracking analytics, integrative holistic medicine, networked devices, and gaming.

Last year, I coordinated a literature review on behalf of the National Endowment for the Arts for Operation Homecoming. We surveyed more than 60 journal articles focusing on using art therapy interventions for treating PTSD and comorbidity, particularly in military populations. I also worked on a feasibility study for a planned art center in Upstate New York scheduled to open in 2017. Previously, I worked as Office Manager/Gallery Associate at shopSCAD (2007–2011) where I assisted executive staff across three campuses as well as students, alumni, and the local community.

I've contributed writing to the National Endowment for the Arts, The STEAM Journal, and artcore journal, and interviewed various industry professionals such as entrepreneurs, artists, and curators. Other activities include assisting with curation and installation of exhibitions as well as creating artist websites.

I live in Maryland with my husband, Jonathan Yoerger, and work at the National Institutes of Health. In my free time, I enjoy cycling, archery, visiting museums, and traveling (I'm a bit of a Franco-Anglophile).
