Graduate Student

My research focuses on transportation tourism in the U.S. South following the Civil War. My dissertation explores economic development in Texas through the construction and operation of the Texas & Pacific Railway.

Before matriculating at the University of Georgia, I earned my master's degree from the College of Charleston and the Citadel's joint program, with a thesis focusing on the hotel industry in South Carolina from 1880 to 1930. I earned my bachelor's degree from Stetson University, with a thesis focusing on the development of the Dixie Highway in Florida.
