About Me

I have 30 years of family tree research experience. In addition to researching my own family tree, I have also helped many friends, coworkers and others with their family tree. Everyone has a unique story to tell. Some family histories are easier to research than others. My family history took an unexpected turn when I started using DNA to fill in the "blanks".

Professional Experience

My professional worklife prepared me well. Having years of experience as a Project Manager, Supervisor in Information Technology and working in teams built a strong foundation of research skills. It helped that from the very time I was a young child, I was asking questions about the family that came before me.

Volunteer Experience

Community service and volunteering in many arenas over the years has been a hallmark in my immediate family. I have served on boards ranging from my local community, regional, statewide and even on an international board.


I am currently a member of the Saunders County, Nebraska Genealogy Society as well as the Saunders County Nebraska Historical Society.
