Thanks for stopping by! Let me introduce myself a bit – I’m a wife, mom, and global health epidemiologist. If you sit by me on an airplane, I will likely show you all 639 pictures of my family I took in the last month. My husband of 16 years, Mike Smith, is a pastor in Waco Texas and we have two children (Bella and Jonathan) and a dog (Charlie). FYI: Charlie looks calm in the picture, but it’s deceiving! I love coffee, books, nature, hammocking, and joy. See links below for my academic affiliations.
