My Biography

Jasmin Reed is currently in her junior year at Plymouth State University. She will graduate next semester with a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Sociology, as well as a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) certificate. Outside of class, and especially in the warmer east coast weather, she enjoys hiking and kayaking. The rest of the time, she goes to concerts, watch movies and spend time with friends. Jasmin is excited and grateful to have been accepted into the AAA’s Louise Lamphere and Naval History and Heritage Command Internship program. Having developed archaeological lab work skills through the Enfield Shaker Museum a couple summers ago, she looks forward to reviving these abilities in addition to further cultivating new skill sets and knowledge.

After graduating, Jasmin hopes to further her education by applying to a Museum Studies or Cultural Resource Management graduate program. Her professional goal is to work within a museum’s collections management department, and by extension, process and advocate for the repatriation of culturally significant items. Promoting an ethical and enriching partnership between museums and Indigenous tribes is significant for the future of not only museum operations, but also the structure of public education and outreach.

Jasmin looks forward to starting this unique opportunity, and can’t wait to build lasting connections within these organizations!

Jasmin will be splitting her time between AAA and the Naval History and Heritage Command.
