I started on my family's genealogy after my maternal grandmother's death - I found a family history she'd been working on, and I was hooked! My ancestry is 75% Italian, so I have strong roots in Italia - but I am also a typical European mutt, with my (maternal) grandmother's roots reaching to Ireland, Wales, England, Germany (Prussia), Canada, and elsewhere.
Both of my parents are teachers, as is my brother - and both my dad and brother are history professors - so it seems that a love of history runs in my blood!
I've worked full-time as a professional genealogist since 2014 but have been researching for 12 years. In the past, I've also worked as an actor, in PR & Marketing, and in the study abroad field. I lived in Dublin for a while and have traveled extensively in Europe. I love to travel, and recently returned from six weeks in Italy (and seven weeks in Salt Lake!). Something fun is that I worked as one of the researchers for Season 2 of PBS' Genealogy Roadshow and had a blast!
