Hello JWHA members!

I am pleased to join you as the latest Book Manager. I live on the beautiful Pacific coast in the Monterey Bay area. I joined the wide world of Restoration studies in 2006 when I began blogging as a bored stay-at-home mom. It’s been exciting to see the opportunities for research which have opened as so many collections have gone online. I still love putting my fingers on the actual manuscripts, but to be able to “zoom in” on the documents is almost as good! I’ve published in several journals, including the JWHA Journal, and I’ve presented at Mormon and religion themed conferences all over the United States, so some of you might be familiar with me that way. I am coauthor of Method Infinite: Freemasonry and the Mormon Restoration, which becomes available for preorder June 1, 2022, from Greg Kofford Books. Over the years, I have worked as an Aquatics Director, STEM teacher and STEAM Camp Director, and Senior Living Lifestyle Director. I hope to meet many of you in person in September at the 50th anniversary annual conference in September. If you see me, come say hi!
