I have always loved science, biology, and nature. I started college in my mid-30'a with a major in pre-med. Life often changes things. I did use my studies in sciences in a career as a Registered Sanitarian with the Texas Department of State Health Services. Thirty year after college graduation, I received info from a dear friend about the Master Naturalists' program. She thought I could use it with my love of nature photography. I had never heard of it but it did peak my interest. What a thrill!!! I received my certification from the East Texas Chapter of Master Naturalists in 2018. Now I am in citizen science. I did not miss my calling after all. What is meant to be...will be. Through MN I found iNaturalist in classes presented by Tania Monayoun on Ornithology and Plant Taxonomy & ID presented by Sam Kieschnick. Who could not be excited about iNaturalist after hearing the two of them talk about it?!!! I have so many different loves in science and nature that it is difficult for me to choose one in which to specialize. I am having too much fun and wonder looking at as much as I can. Plus to see the ripple effect with my son, Tony, and daughter-in-law, Christina asking me what things are or sending me a photo via email to ID makes me so excited. This is simply my life and I am loving it!
