Her desire to find and comment on the many good/weird/funny/scary/interesting things going on out there led her to the ever-evolving world of journalism. She likes to use her words to fight for gender equality, science, animals, and good TV shows. When she's not writing, she's usually making videos involving her twin cats, baking, or watching/playing Jeopardy with her husband. You can find more of her work and musings on Facebook and Twitter.
