Favorite place: Probably Switzerland. The mountains, the crystal clear Alpine lakes and Swiss chalets, and, of course, the chocolate! My idea of heaven.

Favorite pastime: Reading, researching, and travel! I love exploring the back streets in small medieval villages, be it in Germany, Switzerland, or Italy, and then relaxing the afternoon away at an outside café, enjoying the local wine and people watching.

What I love most about what I do: I love the hunt, the challenge of finding ancestors. I had the experience of visiting some of my ancestral hometowns years ago, and I felt that emotional connection of finally putting a face to all the names and seeing the landscapes my ancestors saw. After I got back, I knew I wanted to share this profound connection with others, and I really enjoy helping people have that same feeling.
