Elizabeth hails from the southern climes of Arkansas and has a deep appreciation of nature and science. She earned her B.A. in geology at Bryn Mawr College and enjoyed studying the Earth immensely. However, she discovered that lab work was not as much fun as explaining science to other people. She loves wandering and can often be found on the go listening to a podcast, music or just contemplating the world.
