NCIS Welcomes Three New Members

Freda Bradley (USA) changed careers entirely after spending 25 years in a medical laboratory. In 2012, she checked her Master of Arts in History off her bucket list and became adjunct faculty at West Virginia University at Parkersburg. Freda also runs a small research service called Bridging History specializing in historical and genealogical research for the Mid-Ohio Valley and Metro Valley areas of West Virginia, and performs living history characters based on women during the period of West Virginia statehood.
Paul Schneider (USA) helped preserve, protect and interpret New York State’s and the nation’s history throughout a long professional career as a museum professional. Retiring from the NYS Bureau of Historic Sites after 28 years, he formed the consulting firm Heritage Protection, LLC, and successfully provided expert security and emergency planning services to museums and historic properties across the United States. In 2006, he returned to his first love: conducting historical research. Since then he has actively pursued research projects ranging from transcribing early 19th century manuscript journals to creating a database to study the evolution of firefighting in the US.  
Monica Colţ (Romania) gained Masters degrees in Canadian Studies and in Educational Management and Institutional Communication (Bucharest) following which she took up a Research internship in Germany at Ernst Moritz Arndt Universität in Greifswald. In 2011 she gained her PhD on the "Dynamics of Multiculturalism” from the University of Bucharest, and now teaches English in Bucharest while pursuing her research as an independent scholar.
