Founder & Tour Guide

I founded Ye Olde Tavern Tours in 2013 because I'm passionate about Boston's history and drinking beer. I was eager to give people what I want when I visit a new place or when I explore the city I call home—a mix of learning history and having fun! I received my PhD in American History from Boston College, where I studied Boston during the American Revolution.

I am the author of the recenty-published King Hancock: The Radical Influence of a Moderate Founding Father and Boston in the American Revolution: A Town Versus an Empire.

My favorite site on the Freedom Trail is the Old State House and I'm currently loving Jack's Abby Shipping Out of Boston Amber Lager. Huzzah!

Growing up in nearby Malden, Massachusetts, I have always felt deeply connected to Boston’s history. I received my Bachelor's degree in History from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia before becoming the head tour guide at the Massachusetts State House, where I worked for three years. In my spare time, I like bouldering at the rock climbing gym and passing the New England winters on the ski slopes.

 

My favorite stop on the Freedom Trail is the Massachusetts State House and my favorite local beer is Harpoon Camp Wannamango.

Tour Guide

I’m originally from New Jersey, but after coming to Boston for college, I quickly fell in love with the vibrant cultural and historical atmosphere of the city. I studied American history in a global context at Boston College and began working in nonprofit direct services after graduating. During my free time, I love watching women’s sports, going on walks in nature, and finding new music to listen to.

 

My favorite stop on the freedom trail is the Old State House and my favorite beer to order is Downeast Original Cider!

I'm a Boston native--born and raised--and am proud to call the city home. I attended Boston Latin School (where John Hancock also went to school!) and then received my Bachelor's degree in History from Boston University. I love kickboxing and going to the movies.

 

My favorite stop on the Freedom Trail is the Old State House and my favorite local beer is Cisco's Whale's Tale Pale Ale.

Tour Guide

I have always loved history and how much we can learn from the resilience and power of the people who lived before us. That is a big part of the reason why I was so excited to come to the Boston area for college! I graduated from Tufts University where I took a lot of history classes and double majored in Civic Studies and Film and Media Studies. I am also a social impact documentary filmmaker and work with different local nonprofits on video content. I also love watercoloring and exploring the city!

 

My favorite stop on the Freedom Trail is Old South Meeting House, and one of my favorite local beer is the Whalers Rise APA.
