About Me

For as long as anyone can remember, I had a book in my hands. During the summer of my third grade year, I read every book in the Library's kid section from A to Z.  

I loved to write, make up stories, and create elaborate treasure hunts and maps for my brother and sister. I took my love of writing and telling stories to college, for a degree in English and Political Science, and then to Law School.

I'm passionate about using board books, picture books, and chapter books to inspire a love of reading. And using books and photographs to make nature fun for everyone.

I live with my amazing Pixiebob roommate. And we both miss his sweet sister.

I love connecting kids to nature through stories, photographs, and hikes.
