Hi, I’m Jenn, a former Naval Aviator turned Historian and a loyal Penn Stater. (WE ARE!) I earned my Masters in American History and graduate certificate in Museum Studies, from the University of Memphis.
After starting my museum career I realized how important it was to promote museums while also sharing little known stories of unique history. Walk With History was started by me and my husband to do just that!
We want to promote museums big and small to show how fun they can be, how important they are to the American story, and how vital they are to support. We will also share our adventures in finding the locations where the giants of history walked before us!
