I'm a thirty-something stay-at-home mom living in the greater Atlanta metro area. I was born and raised in northwest Georgia. In 2010, I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, with honors.
I have a wide variety hobbies and interests, including genealogy, parenting (of course), baking, photography, reading, gardening, and more. I like collecting fossils, minerals, and unusual rocks.
Around WikiTree, I enjoy Data Doctoring and participating in community challenges, especially the Clean-a-Thon.

I may be able to help with queries in surrounding counties. (Forsyth, Hall, etc.).
