Barb is a layperson who earned an A.A.S. in forestry in 1982, studied undergrad geology for two years, and then went into medical transcription for twenty-five years because it involved language as well as science.
Now retired from that, she’s enjoying a chance to return to her first love — earth science — thanks to the Internet and (finally) some free time.
Barb has been blogging at Flight To Wonder for years, tweets, has some eBooks out on the cat family and Decade Volcanoes, and is currently grappling with the Precambrian in her quest to understand where cats come from (see sidebar “work in progress”).
