Wendy Harmon grew up with the mountains, rivers, lakes, and streams of western North Carolina at her back door. Born and raised in Rutherfordton, N.C., some of her fondest memories are of outdoor exploratory excursions with her parents, Tommy and Darlene Harmon, where she literally first got her feet wet in ecology—the study of how organisms interact with their environments. When Harmon began looking at colleges, she wanted to find a place where she could further develop her love for science, biology, and ecology.
