About

Welcome! My name is Heather Pierce.

I am a recent graduate from the Burnett Honors College at the University of Central Florida. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in history with a minor in anthropology in 2015. (LinkedIn)

This is a blog dedicated to recording the projects I work on at the Brevard County Historical Commission (beginning in May 2017). The main objective of this internship is to work on the county’s oral history project. I will also be learning and developing new skills in research, video editing, traditional text editing, utilizing microfilm, indexing, and more.
