Hi, I’m Michelle. I’m a proud Michigander, but for now home is one of the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC. Before this, I lived in central Georgia, about a hundred miles south of Atlanta, for a little over three years.
I hold bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history (with most of my study focusing on environmental history and the rise of green politics) from Central Michigan University. I married my grad school sweetheart, Dallas, on July 25, 2015. I hope to use my degrees work in education or a museum/archival environment at some point in the near future. For now, I have a job that keeps me busy (and in shape!).
I’m a genealogist, amateur photographer, avid reader, clarinetist, saxophonist, and the hu-mom of two cats, Dylan and Felicity. My favorite color is green, though some days I prefer purple. I would rather swim in Lake Huron than any ocean on the planet. I am a cat person who also loves dogs, a grown-up with a fondness for the Muppets, and a low-maintenance woman who owns waaaaaay too many beauty products.
I also enjoy cooking, working out, listening to all kinds of music, and traveling.
Speaking of traveling, here’s a map of all the US states I’ve been to so far:
(I’ve flown over West Virginia and Wisconsin but have never actually set foot in either.)
