Phoebe

I'm Phoebe, or Pheebs, whatever floats your boat. I am best described as a flying squirrel. I'm a born & bred Tennessean, hiking the AT (flip floppin'!) in 2019 with my boyfriend Isaac. I graduated from the University of Tennessee *GO VOLS* in 2017 with a BS in environmental & soil sciences and a minor in plant science. I love to be outside and Isaac & I get really really excited about plants.
