Educational Background

I graduated from King University, Magna Cum Laude, with degrees in English, History, and Religion.

Professional Background

I've worked in banking and telemarketing.

Personal Background

I was born in Lexington, Kentucky but I've lived in a lot of places.

Why Folklore?

I was interested in history for folklorish reasons. Christopher Hill and E.P. Thompson really spoke to my discipline. My specialty is 17th century Radical English Religion. They were essentially historians writing folklore. This was the reason I chose to come here. I've never been happier than at Western!

Fun Fact

When people ask, "Dell, how do I look like you?" I respond, "You're already putting too much thought into it."

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