I teach American Archaeology at Lycoming College and direct multi-year, public archaeology projects, working with hundreds of students and volunteers, and educating thousands of visitors.
I also teach communications / media writing at Lycoming College, and direct its summer youth program, Lycoming College for Kids.
My educational specialties include developing curricula for learners of all ages, mentoring students and overseeing their independent projects and internships.
With my husband, Lance Van Auken, I operate Hands on Heritage, a consulting firm that helps its clients discover, explore, celebrate and share their cultural heritage through a variety of unique projects. Offering a range of historical research and interpretive services, we can help you tell your story in the format that suits your needs, while adhering to the highest standards of historical practice.
