What advice would you give to yourself as a brand new student archivist?
If I could go back in time and give myself advice, I would ask how to relabel boxes once more time before messing up ten of them!
Do you remember the happiest you've ever been in the archives?
Whenever I can help someone get the information they need and they leave happy, that makes me happy! It sounds cliche, but it's very true.
What has been your biggest accomplishment in the archives?
Continuing to learn all the programs and standard routines of running the archives.
What's your favorite part about working in the archives?
Probably seeing projects get finished. Also getting to help people with requests.
What's your favorite thing in the archives?
I really like the chest with the rosemaling! It was a gift during one of the Concordia Choir's tours of Norway.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I would like to work in a museum or a historical society.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
It's a tie between three: to never have to sleep again, but always feel good; the power of resurgence; and the ability to not run into my desk every time I wheel my chair across the office!
