Community Manager, Blogger I'm the Community Manager of the Birds & Blooms forums, as well as a twice-weekly writer for the blog and occasional author of articles in our magazines. I also work as the Assistant Coordinator of MOSI Outside at the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) in Tampa, where my responsibilities include butterfly gardening and raising native butterflies for free-flight Butterfly Encounter exhibit. On the personal side, I'm 30-something, married with no kids. I grew up in Hinckley, OH, famous for the yearly "Return of the Buzzards" and then attended Bowling Green State University, where I received a degree in Secondary English Ed and Choral Music. After that, I lived in Toledo, Ohio for 8 years until my husband and I decided to move to Tampa, Florida in 2006. When I'm not gardening, you'll find me reading, traveling, and happily digging my toes into the sand on the beach. If you need assistance on this forum, contact me at florida33girl@gmail.com.
