About Rebecca

Rebecca Deatsman is a naturalist, educator, and writer currently based out of Walla Walla, Washington, where she is engaged in an ongoing battle with the morning glories and raspberries trying to take over her vegetable garden. Her past wanderings have taken her from her home in small-town Ohio to the Saskatchewan prairie, the Australian Outback, a barrier island on the coast of Georgia, the North Woods of Wisconsin, and the cattle ranching country of eastern Oregon. She has a master’s degree in environmental education from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and can generally be found wandering around in the woods looking at birds and bugs. You can follow her on Twitter at @rdeatsman¬†and see her resume on her LinkedIn profile.
