Work
Occupation
I work at an Aquarium
Story
Introduction

I help spread love and kindness through the science of Applied Behavior Analysis. With it I help pet owners openly communicate with their animals without using fear, force, or coercion. I volunteer my talents to Florida Parrot Rescue to transform previously unhandleable parrots into gentle, trusting pets. 

My long term goals include paying off my college loans and curating a zoo, curating Loro Parque would be my dream job. Currently I work at a local aquarium caring for animals with graduation around the corner in Fall 2014!

Bragging rights
I am the Behavior Educator for Florida Parrot Rescue donating my time to teaching foster volunteers the ethics and methods of Applied Behavior Analysis over Skype, email, and in person.
