I have a life long interest in wild animals, behavioural science and training, a Degree in Biology from Murdoch U. and lots of learning and practice in the areas of training (humans, that is) and speaking. I am a member of a number of professional organisations in these areas too.
My journey to this point includes moving countries / states four times before the age of five, rescuing my first bird age 6, being the shyest kid in high school, getting a license to keep non-releasable (disabled) raptors to use in presenting educational programs and starting my first business at age 28, back in 2002.
I have worked as an environmental educator since I began my wildlife volunteer work in 1995. I speak to all kinds of people when they find injured animals, or through my speaking roles. I’ve presented to teens in prison, retirees, volunteers, professionals, kindy kids and many more. I also train people to train their dogs. This is good exercise for my training and problem solving skills.
