Hi! I'm Jareesa.
Hi! I’m Jareesa.

Jareesa’s first  (and favorite) word was “why”. Her desire to figure things out led her to a passion for reading adult novels and anything science-related. She graduated from the University of Minnesota with a BS in Chemistry  and immediately started a Chemistry PhD at Georgia Tech, where she spent too much time partying and not enough time studying. Jareesa spent the next seven years as a laboratory chemist aka mad scientist, while chronicling her exploits on her personal blog that three other people read. She’s since left the lab, but still loves to figure shit out, learn new things, and scare people with her Walter White-like powers. Her biggest claim to fame is having almost 2,000 followers on Twitter, and also meeting her husband via Twitter (yes, he slid in her DMs). She and her husband live in Minneapolis, where she can be found knitting, tweeting and enjoying the city with her Meetup group.
