In my Smart Talk Episode 092 conversation with Mary Beth Baptiste you’ll hear about:

  • Excerpts from her book that summarizes her overall message to the reader
  • Her drive to make a change and live in the Wyoming mountains
  • How she found the courage to make the leap
  • How her research as a wildlife biologist convinced her that animal feel and suffer as people do

Altitude Adjustment

Do you have a burning inner drive for something not yet realized. Do you wonder how to start your dream even though it is scary? I have to say upfront, this is not a typical smart talk interview. I invited someone who followed her lifelong dream. I invited author an biologist Mary Beth Baptiste because I was struck by her bravery, her honesty and her beautifully written memoir describing the power of the human will.

Mary Beth Headshot

Altitude Adjustment author Mary Beth Baptiste knows all about following lifelong dreams:  In the 1990s she left her whole known world on the east coast to take a wildlife biology job at Grand Teton National Park. Her memoir describes her journey from her entrenched Portuguese roots in Massachusetts to the rugged mountains of Wyoming. An award-winning author, she has published her work in a variety of periodicals and anthologies.
