VJ is a museum educator and curator who loves to pursue untold stories at the margins of history. At Pearl S. Buck International, she focused on developing programs and exhibits that highlighted both historical and contemporary activism. She also secured museum accreditation through the American Alliance of Museums.
In her previous work at Peter Wentz Farmstead, her research and program development on the history of enslavement resulted in the museum’s placement on the National Park Service’s Underground Railroad Network to Freedom register.
When she isn’t working, she can be found playing and writing professionally for historically inspired tabletop roleplaying games.
