The life of a historian is never dull, I have learned. No matter where you go, there is fascinating history to be learned and shared. After working professionally as a historian and archivist for 25 years, I’m just as busily engaged in local and regional history projects now and enjoy helping others develop the skills needed to apply historical insights to daily life. Being a trained archivist has also been very rewarding. I enjoy helping individuals, organizations, and institutions organize and preserve their history and make it available for future generations.
