I've loved furry, winged, and finny critters for as far back as I can remember, and I've been working professionally with animals for over a decade. Besides having been a dog trainer, I'm also a naturalist at a nature center. I teach preschool there, and my mornings are spent doing importantly silly things like painting with pine needles and leading roly poly expeditions. I also run the nature center's art gallery, work part time at a natural history museum, substitute teach at local preschools, and lead seasonal ECE Art & Nature Workshops for a coastal land conservancy. My current creative outlet is making kooky, kitschy collage art and little craftsy girly things for my Etsy shop... (yay!) Though my schedule is always busy, it's also always fun! This site keeps friends, family, clients (& random curious visitors) connected with info, tips & positivity-infused musings of the (mostly) pup, planet, preschool, & princessy variety.
