Greetings, my name is Jeffrey Lee Rynearson. I grew up reading about plants on a daily basis, for years. I started in sixth grade. Within one year, I had read every book in my towns library about them, within the next year, I had read the entire library's books in the adjacent city. Soon, I had read all the books about plants that I could get my hands on, and I grew several gardens. I became the little know-it-all in town, and was nicknamed "The Plant Man."
I am now 31, I went to school to get a degree in natural medicine or ethnobotany. I wanted to work for a pharmaceutical company, in the wilderness, like the Amazon, where I could try and find new compounds for medicine, within plants. I ended up changing majors, but my passion and knowledge is still present.
I have two degrees pending graduation. I was inducted into two honor societies, one for English Scholars in the United States (Sigma Kappa Delta) and the other is the largest and most prestigious INTERNATIONAL honors society for two year Colleges, Phi Theta Kappa. I am a current member of both societies. My 6 year GPA is 3.75. My grades were rated as the top two percent in the nation at induction of Phi Theta Kappa.
After finishing up school, I decided to take a year off and apply for scholarships and a much needed break as six years is a long time. I submited an article for publication and finalized my book.
I had a lot of spare time on my hands and I ended up selling a few herbal items on Craigslist and saw that it made money, so I decided to go online. I have spent thousands of hours doing research and learning, and I've spent just as much time getting to know the community online that likes to take alternative forms of therapy and what-not.
