From obtaining a bachelor’s degree in biology and pre-veterinary science from Wake Forest University to working in education, to getting my professional sciences master’s degree in Zoo, Aquarium, and Animal Shelter Management (CSU), I have found that I  have three great passions in life: 1) being the voice for those without; 2) working to bridge gaps in communication; and 3) working collaboratively to achieve these goals.
