Louise grew up in the Washington D. C. suburbs with compassion and curiosity for the natural history around her. Never without a field guide, she began exploring nature at an early age. Her passion for animals, insects and outdoors directed her studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville where she received her BA in Zoology. She further developed her skills with course work in wetland ecology, environmental education and most recently beekeeping.
Her career ranges from a field biologist for the Jacksonville District, Army Corps of Engineers Regulatory Division delineating wetlands in Florida to a science educator for grades 5-8 and an environmental educator for grades K-8. She is a certified open water SCUBA diver, a master gardener and naturalist. She maintains 20 beehives, tags monarch butterflies for Project Monarch Watch and teaches beekeeping.
Louise enjoys spending time with her family, playing Irish music with her three sons at local venues, traveling, gardening, knitting and helping with honeybee and pollinator conservation.
She is currently the Director of Education and Programs for Sweet Virginia Foundation where she actively teaches children about honeybees and pollinators
