Meet the Alchemist

If I am going to share content I want to ensure my readers know a little bit about me. I’ll try to keep it short and sweet.

My name is Hillary, I’m a 24 year old middle school science teacher. I studied Chemistry in college and always thought I’d move from undergrad to Pharmacy School until I had the opportunity to work as a TA. I enjoyed helping people learn, so much that I made a career out of it. Best choice ever.

I have 2 four legged children, AnabellĀ  and The Professor, I adore them both. Anabell is the goofiest, most dramatic fun loving girl. She will be 6 this year and is still often confused for a puppy. (She gets it from her Momma) The Professor is the newest member to our little family. He was part of a grant program to encourage science students to learn content as well as responsibility and ethical handling of animals in a learning environment. He has helped me gain the nickname Khaleesi at work and I just love him!

When I’m not in the kitchen I enjoy reading, hiking and traveling. In my opinion the more time I can spend outdoors, the better.

As far as cooking goes, I’m here to experiment, share my results with my peers to see if anyone would like to reproduce my results. Kind of like the Scientific Method…
