Charlotte Muth is embarrassed to admit that she doesn’t have a background in history or the D.C. area. In fact, she studied English and Linguistics at the University of California Berkeley and had only visited the nation’s capital twice before joining the Boundary Stones team. Passionate about words and storytelling, Charlotte likes to think of history as the archeological study of words and stories from the past: a good discovery requires digging, close scrutiny and a pinch of luck. While she hails from sunny Los Angeles, she has greatly enjoyed weathering Washington’s rich history, come rain, snow, hell or high water. In college, she edited a fashion magazine and volunteered as a radio DJ. In her spare time, she enjoys wearing outfits that are too fancy or outlandish for the circumstances, listening to podcasts at 1.5 speed and investigating the etymology of words.
