Outside Maynard Nexsen

As a resident of the South Carolina Lowcountry and a native South Carolinian, Andrea has a deep appreciation for the natural beauty and rich history surrounding her.  This led Andrea to enjoy the thrill of the hunt—fossil hunting that is!  Andrea has embarked on several fossil hunting excursions with her family, resulting in some exciting discoveries from prehistoric eras.

But, to Andrea, the best discovery on these excursions is the reminder that we are occupying a very small space in time, so seize the day and make that time count!
