She is an alumni of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and she received her doctorate for region-wide re-analysis of Wisconsin's effigy mounds and mound builders. She has worked as an archaeologist in the academic, private, and public sectors. In her current position at the Wisconsin Historical Society, she manages archaeological and burial sites data, assists Wisconsin's citizens with archaeological questions, and serves as a subject matter expert.

Lumber transportation was one of the largest industries in Wisconsin prior to the turn of the 20th century extending major influence on how Lake Michigan's coastal communities grew and developed. Many of these lumber communities no longer exist today. Some of the only cultural materials associated with this important part of Wisconsin's hinterland maritime commerce remain hidden just below the surface of the water. Learn about the "Ghost Port" communities along the largely undeveloped Lake Michigan coastline of Kewaunee County, how to find them by boat, what to see, and the history that they left for us to discover.
