Educational Background

I got an associate's in arts from Western Kentucky Community Technical College in Paducah, KY and a Bachelor's in History from Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, KY.


Professional Background

When I was at Lindsey, I was a secretary in the International Department and then I did a semester internship at the Kentucky Historical Society. This past summer, I worked at Riverview at Hobson Grove.


Personal Background

I'm from Benton, Kentucky. It's in Marshall County.


Why Folklore?

I was at the Historical Society in Frankfort. They suggested folk studies and it went from there. It was fate! I'm happy to be here. Fun Fact I grew up on a working farm. We raised cattle – poll Hereford cattle. It's a beef cow.
