"Study the science of art; Study the art of science.
Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”

I live in Atlantic Canada, and regardless of where I live, I will always consider myself a “Saint Johner”. I use my nerd street cred (BA in psychology and French, and PhD in experimental psychology, from the University of New Brunswick) to support health research by day, and explore science and art by night.

My weekly Substack, Campfire Notebook, is where I muse about curiosity, creativity, and sharing science. You can also find my writing over at The Miramichi Reader, where I review books; I prefer contemporary fiction, narrative non-fiction, graphic novels and poetry - and if they are humorous, all the better.

When not reading, I’m exploring the New Brunswick forests and seascapes, camera in hand.

She/Her. Exploring the art of sharing science and engaging people in research. Once got an honorable mention in my third grade science fair for making a miniature greenhouse out of plastic wrap.
