As a child, my parent encouraged reading, and they had no idea it would create a reading addiction. As a youth, I spent my life in the library, and my first job money went to subscriptions to book clubs in order to receive books every month.
I also met my future husband at the library in our home town. He says he saw me with my long hair, nose deep in a book, and when I looked up to smile at him, he was in love. Such a sweet story from a truly amazing person.
As my family and friends know, I went back to school in 2017 to complete my Baccalaureate. This process was difficult with some unexpected health issues, surgeries, and various other unpleasant life surprises. However, with Jamie, my family and friends (along with some incredible teachers!), the degree was mine.
In 2019, I graduated from a B.A., Majoring in History and Minoring in langues et linguistiques.
In 2020 I graduated from a MLitt in Viking Studies.
Currently I am studying for a PhD in Human Studies and Interdisciplinarity.
The medieval period is fascinating to me, particularly the Celts, Picts, Ango-Saxons, and Vikings/Norse. This might show up a tad in some podcasts.
Hopefully you can join me in this mini-adventure of History. In the podcast I interview scholars, students, amateurs, academics, other podcasters, and so many more! My goal is to give you a small taste of a topic and help you learn more about it.
I have been so lucky to meet incredible people in my journey so far, I hope you will enjoy it just as much!
PS If you wanted to hear an interview I have done about me, Alex Williamns kindly invited me on an episode of his podcast. Here is the link: My Wax Museum Episode #057 – Family, Culture, & History w/ Rosie Parent .
