Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Wolf Spider (Lycosidae), Tigrosa georgicola. She looks feminine, but I don’t know if she’s mature … immature males typically look feminine.

Might be a mature female at that size. They do carry their babies. Mature males are proportioned quite differently with longer legs.

Solitary for the most part except for mating and then of course carrying all the babies. I imagine she wouldn’t go too far … it’s the males that have to do most of the wandering in search of the females.
