Whether climbing the tallest rock, belaying at the rock wall, hiking some of the most beautiful terrain, finding the best fishing hole, or simply looking for worms and learning about weird bugs, these adventurers will meet and begin each day in the freedom and fresh air of the great outdoors.

An enthusiast of the outdoors, advocate of animal rights, woman of science, and life-long learner—I am eager to share my intelligences and experiences with children young and old. I consider my strengths in naturalistic and intrapersonal intelligence and I try to use these attributes to serve others and deepen my own personal ambitions. I’ve been a traditional teacher for 4 years during which I have taught Biology, Marine Biology, and Environmental Science. I’ve also been considered a “bird brain” as I have provided programs about birds for local assisted living groups.
In my free time, I indulge in the outdoors where nature is my therapy and environmental advocacy is my passion. I advocate for the health of our earth while additionally, encouraging individuals to consider their own lifestyle and the impacts of the choices they make. I believe that the food we eat, the activities that we pursue, and the mindsets that we maintain can have everlasting impact on our own bodies and the earth we are indebted to.
I enthuse on the beauty of our state and the amazing biodiversity in Alabama. I am likely to be found outside on a sunny (or rainy) day hiking on public lands, splashing around on my board with my paddle pups or on the lakeshore reading a good book about science. When the opportunity arises, I travel outside of our state to experience other communities and cultures. Experiencing Ireland, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Montana, and Idaho have been some of my favorite adventures. My aspirations are to make friendship with the world and to seek knowledge and wealth through humility. My life motto is “I’d rather be bizarre than boring.”
