My research interests are 18th century medicine, physick and herbal gardens, North American Roman Catholic women leaders and all things Celtic, Gaelic and Irish.

For fun, I love to travel (real world and virtual), kayaking, read mysteries and historical novels, visit museums, historic sites and old cemeteries, and enjoy the company of family and friends. I always find time to play with my King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.
