My dissertation analyzes how feme sole businesswomen managed their slave-manned enterprises in the early national South. I grew up in Iowa City, and received my B.A. in History, English, and Women’s Studies from St. Olaf College. Before graduate school, I worked for Oxford University Press and Macmillan Learning in New York City, and even dug up a Spanish silver coin at Jamestown.
