What stories do you have to tell?

I’m Kimberly, a historian, writer, and educator based in Wilmington, NC. I specialize in the history of the family, women, and death ways in early America and the Atlantic World. I am committed to elevating the voices of those who, in the past, may not have had the chance to share their stories.


Find my latest blog posts here! I write about early American history, North Carolina, research methods, and more.

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.

Marcus Garvey

A writer once said that history doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.

Learning about the past helps us understand not only who we are, but who we could become.

Kimberly’s work shows “the right combination of scholarly detail and precision with an interesting, flowing, and well-crafted narrative.”

— M. L.
