About me

My life in a nutshell...


I was born in Oviedo, Florida where I grew up with my mom, dad, brother & sister. I grew up in Oviedo up until I left for college to Gainesville, FL.


I graduated from the University of Florida, with a B.S. in Environmental Science and minor in Sustainability Studies. I hope to return to school in the near future with a focus on botany!


My botanizing began in college in Florida. Since then, I've botanized in places from the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennesee all the way to the Bay Area in California!


In my free time I enjoy exploring the outdoors hiking, backpacking, and climbing. I also enjoy crocheting, baking, and reading.
