My name is Dr. Rachel McGovern.  I have a PhD in genetic-based HIV research and an ever-growing passion for environmental conservation and sustainability, what I call “green fever”.

I was bit by the green bug over a decade ago, and have gradually incorporated new environmentally conscious habits into daily life in order to reduce my, and my family’s, footprint on the planet.  I hope to inspire and guide those who are curious about, or those already chasing, the green bug.

Together I believe we can make a difference to ensure a healthy planet for the future.
