She conducted her field work primarily in Central America where she lived in a tent in the jungles of Belize for nine years while searching for lost Maya ruins, but she’s also conducted field work in various locations around the world, including Africa and Western Europe

Before graduate school, she briefly attended Georgetown Law School and worked as a murder investigator for the Washington DC Public Defenders Service where she gained an insiders view of the criminal justice system.
