Botanist turned full time mom after developing slump in California. I am a technical writer for biological reports of all kinds and have now turned myself to creative writing instead. Must keep my brain active. My hobbies include dressage, hiking, reading, dancing and having fun with my kids. I have a degree in Botany from U.C. Davis, in California and worked professionally for over 13 years in the consulting world. The switch to blog writing has been a happy change of pace!!
