She is now a Project Manager and Archaeologist for Pacific Legacy, Inc. and holds affiliate research and teaching positions with Bishop Museum and the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.

Join us and bring all your questions about the real world of archaeology in Hawaiʻi. These two have an abundance of knowledge and they are excited to share! Although this event is oriented towards college students, anyone considering a career in archaeology in Hawaiʻi is welcome.
