Hi, I’m Bernice. I live in Virginia with my husband, Aaron, and our son, Max (born January 2015). I created my blog Stitches & Press as a way to document the things I love: DIY projects, home decor, fashion and (occasionally) our adorable son.

A little bit about me: I like people who can laugh at themselves, I don’t trust parents who don’t vaccinate their kids, I always take 2 Aleve before wearing high heels and one of my biggest fears is being stuck on an elevator without a snack.

Professionally, I’m a scientist involved in the human microbiome project, which studies how changes in the normal bacteria present on our bodies affect human disease. I’m particularly interested in understanding how the microbiome relates to women’s health. It’s nerdy but I love it.
