I am an animal educator that brings science related ideas to an audience from around the world by presenting fun and interesting topics in a family friendly way. Animals touch our lives in unique ways everyday as simply being our pets and companions, but how can we make their lives equally as special now that they live in captivity? My YouTube channel and blog explore ways to meet this goal by tackling things like animal behavior, human-animal relationships and veterinary medicine. Animal science is a great way to teach people of all ages that education is fun and nerdy is cool. My experience includes dogs and cats, but also expands to exotics such as parrots, sugar gliders, opossums and more! I also have a service dog and am an advocate for assistance animals and mental health awareness.
