There, she wrote about curiosities—from polar bear hair plugs to catfish physicals—that might otherwise have slipped through the cracks.
Helen holds a BA in human development from the University of California San Diego and an MA in strategic public relations from the University of Southern California. She lives in Santa Cruz, California where she and her family enjoy camping, hiking, and searching for banana slugs, wild turkeys, and forest fairies.
