I discovered my love of genealogy about eighteen years ago after the birth of my daughter. I wanted to discover our family history in order to pass it on to my children. I had some great success and in the process found my niche for doing research and my love of history.
My ten years of experience as a paralegal helped in understanding the workings of the courthouse and the existence of legal records that are an essential part of the genealogical research process. I went back to school in 2004 and attended the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts where in 2008, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in History and a Local History Minor with a GPA of 4.0. I worked on many local history projects, attended conferences, lectured and interned at the local library archives where I also volunteered as a researcher.
My own research has inspired me to help others learn more about their own family history. I treat each new family investigation as if it were my own.
