“Hello, My name is Shannon Foley. I am incredibly excited to be interning at UCSF’s
Archives & Special Collections this semester. I am currently in my last semester at the University of
San Francisco and will be graduating with a degree in Art History and Museum Studies.
Last semester I interned at the University of San Francisco’s Thacher Gallery. I helped
with their online exhibitions, a great experience learning how to navigate fully online
exhibitions.
At the University of San Francisco, the Art History and Museum Studies program offers
a diverse range of skills and experiences that I am excited to bring these skills to this
internship.
I grew up just an hour north of San Francisco in Sonoma County but have enjoyed
living in San Francisco for the past few years. When I am not in a class, I love to cook
and bake for my friends and family. I have also played tennis for the past ten years and
have enjoyed playing more during the pandemic. I am very passionate about traveling
and visiting museums abroad and locally.
On any given day, I can be seen walking my dog Louie and reading a good book.”
