I am a genealogy researcher, writer, and educator. I earned the Certified Genealogist credential in 2017.
Genealogy education is my passion. Thinking I “knew it all,” I enrolled in the Boston University Genealogy Studies Program expecting it to be easy. After that humbling experience, I realized how much more I needed to learn. I received my certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University (2014), completed the National Genealogical Society Home Study Course (2015), and graduated from the ProGen study program (2016). I love attending institutes and conferences to further my education as well as to meet others who share my passion.
To give back to the programs that were so pivotal for my genealogical journey, I am currently an instructor in the Boston University Genealogy Studies Program and a ProGen Study Group mentor. I am also a trustee for the BCG Education Fund where I serve as treasurer.
My articles have appeared in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (NGSQ), the National Genealogical Society Magazine, the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society Record, and regional magazines and journals. Currently, my research focuses on extending my female lines. As Abigail Adams wrote to her husband, “…I desire you would Remember the Ladies, & be more generous & favourable to them than your ancestors.” I want to honor my female ancestors by researching their lives and illuminating their origins.
I recently moved from Connecticut to Colorado where I live with my husband and three school-age children.
