About Me

I have a BS in Kinesiology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and MS in Kinesiology from the University of Georgia. Despite how busy my professional obligations keep me, I always make time for my genealogy, and I make frequent trips back to my hometown of Madison, WI. I got my start in genealogy at the age of 12, when I first learned how to work with the old film readers at the historical society. I have worked with clients since 2008, first through Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness, and now through Genlighten. I spend a lot of my free time at the Wisconsin Historical Society and traipsing through cemeteries. If you have any special requests, please ask and I will see what I can do for you!
