Welcome to our New Staff!

Lauren Katz News and Events

We are thrilled to announce the latest additions to the Utah State Archives team!

Maren Peterson, who previously worked with us in a part-time position, joined our Records and Information Management team as the Education and State Agency RIM Specialist. In this role, she will help her assigned agencies with records management and facilitating the transfer of records to the care of the State Archives.

Valerie Jacobson, who previously worked with our friends at State History, has taken on the crucial role of Office Specialist. She’s excited to help us keep our office running smoothly and our staff supported!

Val and Maren will be working out of our main office, but we wanted to make sure they were familiar with our second location. Kendra, our Chief Records Officer and RIM Section Manager, brought Maren and Valerie to the Records Center to meet the staff, see the facility, and learn about their processes.
