Self-study over several years on the trails of the Western U.S. and dogged pursuit of her passion for wildflowers led her to write this guide.

She is currently working on a film about the federally threatened Pecos Sunflower and its rare wetland habitat in Santa Rosa, New Mexico. Her work has been published in bioGraphic, Scientific American, National Geographic Online, High Country News, New Mexico Magazine, Mongabay.com and other publications.
