Educationally trained as an art historian at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, I have always had a great appreciation for art. I recall as a young child spending hours at a time looking at art works and books that we had around our home and asking my mom and older brother so many questions.
My professional career and my academic career emerged simultaneously and for that I am incredibly grateful. This accidental blessing was by necessity – coming from a single, working class family my siblings and I needed to make financial contributions to our household. Therefore, while taking a full course schedule at the University of Pittsburgh I also worked several part-time jobs. This study/work ethic followed me throughout my academic career. I now realize these professional experiences, which included but were not limited to writing, curating, marketing, public relations, visual merchandising, photo styling and social media management, enhanced my educational advancement. But the professional experiences that I had, while also studying, also provided transferable skills such as visual and critical thinking, problem solving, strong writing and verbal communications and analyzing and interpreting information from a variety of sources.
