Books – there are so many great books. This page is devoted only to those that opened my mind or heart in a meaningful way. I’d love to receive suggestions to add to my to-read list, as well.

Lab Girl

by Hope Jahren

A memoir by an award-winning scientist. Hope has proven herself in a competitive, underfunded and male-dominated field. I love how she shows her care for the earth as a whole through the specifics of the trees and plants she studies. She’s not afraid to get dirty, but her greatest obstacle is how to be purely herself in a world that insists she look, act, or be, something else.
