Born in Minnesota, lived in Texas since 1993. MA in Plant Ecology, University of South Dakota. Have worked as field biologist in US and Paraguay, Environmental Education in California. It was hard to make a living in my preferred profession so I retired as an Accountant. I continued my passion for nature in my spare time planting native gardens on our 3 acre property, with an emphasis on attracting wildlife. And promoting green energy by installing 5000 gallons of water collection and solar panels to supplement electric supply. My husband and I are also passionate about reducing our use of plastic single use containers. We love birding as much as plants, at home and travelling all over the US to visit nature preserves. We are members of the Native Plant Society of Texas, Native Prairie Association of Texas, Texas Audubon and Balcony's Canyonlands Master Naturalists. VP and President of NPSOT Austin 2022 and 2023. Chair of NPSOT NICE! Program to promote native plants with local nurseries, created the NPSOT Native Plant Database (, member of NPSOT HEB Initiative Team to promote native plants. I love posting wildlife photos on iNat.
