Hi, I’m Abby. I am ABD for a PhD in biological sciences, and for my work, I help scientists talk about their research to non-scientists. I live with my husband (generally referred to as Hubs), two cats (Zeda and Duncan), and a dog (Tonks) in North Carolina. In early 2015, I will complete my 200 hour yoga teacher certification. I like to hang with my friends and family, craft, read for fun, and volunteer with Tonks as a Pet Partners team. Welcome to my attempt to record my journey of consciously inviting joy.
