Please note: I am fortunate to work with the most wonderful clients! If I have indicated that I am not currently accepting clients, my client load is only temporarily full. However, please reach out and discuss your project with me, as I may be wrapping up a project or able to work a project into my current queue depending on the situation.
I am an Author, Digital Archivist, Professional Genealogist, Professionally Licensed Educator, and Certified Librarian Assistant. I am a member of the Board of Directors, Hendricks County Museum, where I am also the Digital Collections Manager.
- *I earned a Bachelors in Education from Milligan College.
- *Masters in Education from Indiana Wesleyan University.
- *Following my passion for genealogy and archives, I obtained additional certification in Genealogical Research from Boston University.
I am an instructor/contributor for the Indiana Memory Project, at Hendricks County, an initiative of digital preservation via the Indiana State Library and State of Indiana. I research, digitize, and archive historic photographs and documents for the county museum, and research historical questions for patrons.
I recently served as an Intern Supervisor for the Indiana University Certification in Archival Management program on behalf of the Hendricks County Historical Museum.
I have written for magazines, genealogical research, journals, and I have a book published regarding the history of the town of Brownsburg in images, "Images of America: Brownsburg," Arcadia Publishing.
I volunteer with the Indiana Pioneer Cemetery Restoration Project and have been trained in Advanced Cemetery Preservation by the Indiana Historical Society. I enjoy researching cemetery records and locations. Although I am a full range records researcher, I particularly enjoy land records, photograph identification and digitization, and family records research.
