I presently live on the Olympic Peninsula in the State of Washington, USA, and can be reached there (pacific standard time zone) when I am not time-traveling to medieval Scotland and Ireland in search of primary sources for WikiTree profiles. My home is in a small coastal town known for its legendary wooden boat builders, funky artists, and breath-taking mountain views.
In my spare time I love hiking in the woods and on the beach; traveling to sacred places all over the world; growing lots of lavender and rosemary around my small cottage; reading; listening to music; baking pies; and staring at the flames in my fireplace.
Married to a man who for the last twenty years of his career was a college president, so I have spent a lot of my life living on campuses: engaged in discussions on a wide range of topics, meeting interesting people, and forming friendships with persons from around the globe. Genealogy has been a life-long interest, but it hasn't been until retirement that I have been able to actively pursue it.
