I was born and raised in East Tennessee and spent my childhood hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains, wading barefoot in creeks, chasing salamanders, fish, and frogs. We loved to tell stories while sitting around the campfire.
Those days of frog chasing sparked my interest in biology. I am a working scientist by day, but I never lost my love of telling stories.
I live in Nashville, Tennessee with my husband, two children, two cats, and my very active imagination.
Hiking, biking, DIY science projects with my kiddos, messing with my cats
