If you have any questions or comments, SAA staff would love to hear from you.
Manager, Communications and Fundraising
I manage four programs—communications, fundraising, awards, and scholarships—alongside the SAA Board, staff, and volunteer committees. Each of my programs strengthens the SAA's ability to support the field of archaeology and recognize professional accomplishments.

Manager, Education and Outreach
I help members and the discipline advance their knowledge and skills by managing the SAA’s Online Seminar Series. I also work with local partners and SAA members to connect our work to the public and answer questions from those who are interested in archaeology. You can contact me about public engagement, online seminars, your professional development as an archaeologist, or questions you may have about archaeology.

Senior Manager, Meetings and Membership
I help organize and plan the annual meeting and communications with members about the services and work of the Society. I can answer questions from exhibiters and advertisers as well as questions about the meeting. Yo hablo castellano y seria un placer ayudarle con cualquier pregunta. Please let me know if I can assist you with your membership or your journal subscriptions.
Manager, Information Services
I serve as webmaster for the Society and manage the online submissions system used during the Annual Meeting Call for Submissions. I also support the Program Committee. If you need technical assistance with the website, please reach out to me.
Manager, Government Affairs
I work with members, committees, and elected leadership to ensure that the SAA remains a leading voice to protect the archaeological record in the United States and around the world. It is my responsibility to make sure that the SAA represents the archaeological community before the U.S. Congress, the White House, federal agencies, and international organizations. If you have any questions regarding government affairs, please contact me.
I support the dissemination of archaeological research alongside our volunteer editors and reviewers as the managing editor and liaison to Cambridge University Press for American Antiquity, Latin American Antiquity, and Advances in Archaeological Practice, as the managing editor of The SAA Archaeological Record, and by producing all documents for annual meetings, including the Preliminary Program and the Final Program. If you need permission to reprint material from The SAA Archaeological Record or books published by The SAA Press, or if you have a question about our publications, please contact me.
