Personal Background

I grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin

 

Educational Background

I graduated from University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire with a B.A. in History and a minor in English Literature.

 

Why Folklore?

The history which I wanted to study had too much of a literature background but was too historical to be combined with English. I enjoy narratives and Folklore gives me an opportunity to look at both the themes/motifs within certain narratives as well as the cultures that harbor these stories.

 

Fun Fact

The elementary school I attended became part of the university I attended for my undergraduate degree. Twelve years of education and all I did was move across the street.

 

What's your favorite word or phrase that sounds like a swear word?

Miffed.
