I am a German citizen, currently living in Wyoming. I came to the US in 2005 and started a PhD program in American Western History and Public History at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. My dissertation blended my research interests in the American West with my European roots and has defined my scholarly activities.
My family and I have made Wyoming our home. We love the mountains and high plains with its wide open spaces. Hiking, backpacking, camping, and attempting to cook various culinary treats at 7,200 feet are among my favorite pastime activities. I have two children and am the proud wife of an officer in the Wyoming Army National Guard.
