Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Texas is no stranger to unsightly bugs, but none are as mysterious as the vinegaroon. A scorpion-like insect that shoots a vinegar solution from its tail, this creature is almost too strange for words.
