I am a neuroscientist, mother of two, and author of the forthcoming chapter book series, THE MAGNIFICENT MAKERS. Originally from Virginia, I currently live with my family in New Jersey. As a scientist, I aim to understand how our nervous system detects and encodes bodily sensations, like touch, pain, and itch. As a writer, my goal is to spark a love for science and discovery in children through storytelling. I am eager to harness all my experience in science writing and channel it into the children’s literature world! I am especially in love with children's literature because the opportunities to ignite the imagination are limitless.
