“I am bound to them though I cannot look into their eyes or hear their voices, I honor their history. I cherish their lives. I will tell their story. I will remember them.” ~ author unknown

Welcome!

Welcome! I am so happy you stopped by. Genealogy research and family history is so much more than just finding another name on your family tree. It is about family. It is about you – and your unique family’s crazy, challenging and wonderful story. I am passionate about helping you find your family, their story and discovering profound and meaningful ways to share it. That is what leaving a legacy is about. Let’s do something with your genealogy research, your family history stories, your pictures and memorabilia, so that your memories, your story, your family legacy - will live on.

Need a coach to help you discover your family history and create a family history legacy, or just get organized? Ready to start your genealogy business, need to develop your social media strategy, or build a platform to launch your book, etc.? I am an experienced consultant that has successfully coached my clients to reaching their goals.

YOU CAN DO THIS.

I will help.
