Hi! I moved to North Carolina in 2006 from Southern California. My father was in the Army for 25 years and was stationed at Fort Bragg so when the opportunity presented itself to return, I jumped at the chance. I have my BS in Zoology from Auburn University and my MS from the University of Illinois-Chicago. I've completed additional graduate work and my education couresework at Lousiana State University. I've lived all over the U.S., Okinawa and Peru. I love to spend my time off traveling the world and typically go to places that have some great reefs for scuba diving. I am not married and have 3 lovely "children" at home-Mollie, a black German Shepherd; Jasper, a flame point siamese; and Mocha, a siamese mix picked up from a shelter.
