I’m an associate scientist, a plant enthusiast, an agriculturalist, an over-thinker, a food junkie, an obsessive gardener, a Pennsylvania native, a yogi, chaser of genuine moments, a hiker, an aspiring hunter, fly-fisherwoman in training, a girlfriend to a wonderfully passionate, caring, & brilliant man, a forager of wild edibles, a sight-seer, a dreamer, a planner, a life-long learner, but most importantly.. 

I’m a wildly curious soul. 

Ultimately, through my thoughts, adventures, research, and ramblings I hope to inspire your interest in the complex, natural world around you. Maybe you’ll start asking more questions, identify a plant you see growing along the sidewalk, buy that field guide on harvesting wild mushrooms, buy a house plant, cook a new recipe, or possibly even start that garden you’ve always talked about. Maybe it’s none of those. Maybe it is something as simple as you read my post and were able to answer somebody’s question because of a random fact you retained from it. In fact, that would be one of the best scenarios. Having conversations like this encourage learning, teaching each other, having genuine moments, building each other up, gaining an interest nature, and sparking curiosity.
