I have a great sense of adventure. As a field Biologist I've lived everywhere from a remote tropical island to a lighthouse in Maine to the woods of Yellowstone. I have a great love for the mountains and for my home state of Idaho. I'm spending this summer in Alaska studying seabirds. Did I mention, I love science! I'm also a 'birder', don't judge me too harshly! ;0) One of my favorite outdoor activities is backpacking, I really enjoy hiking. Dirt under my fingernails brings me as much happiness as a new manicure. I'm outgoing with a bubbly personality. I love to laugh. I enjoy living in the moment, because I never know where my next adventure lies. I have a real passion for knowledge and I love to learn!
