Welcome! I’m Nicole Mark. I live in the Southeast Seminole Heights neighborhood of Tampa, Florida, with the loves of my life–my two hounds, Penelope and Parker. I work full-time as a pharmacy data analyst at Aspen RxHealth, teach yoga, do COVID-19 testing research with colleagues from Idaho State University, and write sporadically.

My interests include, well, nearly everything. But if I had to narrow it down, I’d say the top 20 include yoga, tarot (The Sunday Reading! If you don’t know, now you know), astrology, our food choices and how they impact the planet and other beings, music (my most recent obsession is creating Spotify playlists for my partner and best friend–I am not sure they like them, but I am sure they’re afraid of me), Eastern philosophy, literature (particularly magical realism), mental health advocacy and policy, baking, and podcasts. So many podcasts.

In our sparse downtime, the pups and I like to explore the Tampa Bay area’s dog parks, beaches, and vegetarian eateries with our human and dog friends.
