Genealogical research is my passion. I love investigating and telling an ancestor’s story. I graduated with distinction from the University of Strathclyde with a Master’s Degree in Genealogical, Palaeographic, and Heraldic Studies in 2021. My specialties include US, Scottish, English, and Australian genealogical research. My dissertation and postgraduate projects involved emigration research from European countries (including England, Scotland, and Scandinavia) to the United States.

I currently teach as an adjunct professor at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, USA. I also serve as President-Elect of the Association of Genealogical Educators and Schools Board of Directors.
