I started researching in 1993 and fell in love with solving the puzzle that is family history research. In 2019, I left corporate America and decided to put my skills into work as a professional genealogist. I pursued genealogy education at Boston University, professional groups, genealogy institutes, and conferences. I even started a podcast about criminal ancestors and taught my first course in Criminal Records in the Spring 2023 with the Applied Genealogical Institute.
My focus is on probate heirship research for attorney's, family research projects, speaking, and teaching in the genealogy community. Volunteering is a vital part of my life and currently serving in this capacity as a board member for the Tulsa Genealogical Society, a committee member for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) and the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG).
