I have been doing genealogy as long as I can remember--starting with my mom taking me to look for family members in old graveyards at age 6. By the time I was in high school, the internet was out and I dove right into the research. After minoring in Family History at BYU, I went on to teach English, History, and Math to 5th graders for three years, before making my passion of genealogy into a full time job. During my time with ProGenealogists, I loved helping others uncover the stories in their own family tree! After creating another branch of my family tree with the birth of my daughter, I began contracting out my services in order to be a work at home mom. I specialize in Southern, Midwest, "Delmarva", and German research, though have had experience researching in areas from all over the United States to New Zealand. Below you will find more details about the background that has made me a great researcher!
