About Me

Maeve /ˈmeɪv/ (rhymes with cave!)

I grew up moving all over the country, including living for a year each in England and Germany, with my anthropologist parents. This unique upbringing fueled my interest in learning about diverse topics. I love being able to consolidate and organize my experiences to then educate others.

My interests have led me to work in a variety of fields acquiring a diverse skill set with the (current) ultimate goal of working in a botanical garden or museum.

I recently completed my Master’s of Applied Anthropology (M.A.A.) at the University of Maryland while working at the David C. Driskell Center, an African American art museum and archive. My studies had a heavy focus in ethnobotany (the relationship between plants and people), food anthropology, and museum studies.

While completing my Master’s degree, I was working on multiple research projects including at a botanical garden in San Antonio, TX, a Hindu Temple in Toronto, Canada, and a meta-analysis on urban foraging.

I now live in the San Antonio, Texas area.
