In 2010, Kristin Hicks began a summer internship with the Louisa County Historical Society (in Louisa, Virginia). The internship fostered the further development of particular skillsets, as well as awakened an interest in local history. The often forgotten and untold stories of the primary records of Louisa County are brought to life with careful attention, as the summer internship morphed into a contract with the Louisa County Historical Society that continues today. In 2012, Hicks started Hicks Historical Consulting, LLC to meet the growing demand for research-related services.
