Hello & Kumusta!
When I was a little girl, my mom would take me to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, UT. She taught me all about the joy and thrill of discovering our family.
From April 2013–October 2014 I lived in the Philippines as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I fell in love with the language(s), culture, food, and most of all, the people.
My experiences amongst the Filipinos solidified my love of family history and genealogy. In 2017, I graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor's degree in Family History & Genealogy, and have worked professionally ever since.
When I'm not researching or prepping for a conference, you will find me spending time with my husband and daughter. We enjoy hiking and exploring the great outdoors, trying out new recipes, and birding together.
