Hello. Apparently as a house historian, buildings archaeologist, and professional genealogist I wear several hats depending on the project. My love of history and genealogy began when my eighth grade history teacher helped me to see that history is made up of not just names and dates but of real people. Over time, after a career as a paralegal while on my way to law school, I took a detour into real estate and house histories, and the rest is history (pun intended). If you want to know more about my education and work history you can download my CV or visit my LinkedIn page. Contact me to discuss details of your project or to schedule a speaking engagement. 


Outside of work, I enjoy time with my family, traveling, and running around with my two retired greyhounds.
