The Armchair Naturalist holds a B.S. in molecular biology, an M.S. in biochemistry, and a J.D. Too restless (or some might say “flighty”) to pursue only one career, she spent her 20s as a scientist researching genetic regulation and engineering, her 30s as an attorney consultant analyzing scientific/medical evidence, her 40s as an enrichment science teacher of elementary school students, and her 50s as a training manual writer and collections assistant at a natural history museum. Now in her 60s, she has decided to try her hand blogging about the issues in science and natural history that most interest her. She also enjoys reading fiction, collecting rocks and seashells, or visiting almost any kind of museum, garden, aquarium, and, occasionally . . . nature itself.
