Kristen is interested in the organization and preservation of historical documents for public use. The collections she provides access to are made up of both paper records and digital objects. She works extensively with the Lehigh Valley LGBT Community Archive, but also spend time with a variety of collections including college archives, alumni papers, and Paul McHale’s congressional collection.

Previously, she was the Archivist at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Things that make her happy include archives, letterhead, and minimalist sculpture. When Kristen is not in the library trying to stay warm, she enjoys knitting things to wear to work.
