Coughlin pieces together Winslow’s life through her personal possessions, surviving homes, and archaeological artifacts to provide a rare glimpse into the world of Plymouth Colony's women.

    Coughlin is the author of One Colonial Woman’s World: The Life and Writings of Mehetabel Chandler Coit, about the author of what may be the earliest surviving diary of an American woman. She recently guest-curated Pilgrim Hall Museum's exhibit, "pathFOUNDERS: Women of Plymouth," and currently serves on the board of the Abigail Adams Birthplace and as Museum Administrator of Boston's Gibson House Museum.
