Positions

Overview

  • My formal field of study and passion is Anthrozoology. This is a challenging, multidisciplinary field that studies and actively works to define and understand the complexities of human-animal relationships and interactions. Understanding these complexities is a necessity for any student pursuing a career that intersects with other species; human or otherwise. This especially holds true in the companion animal care concentration. After all, they are the animals we most often have contact with and more often than not, there will be a human attached.

    My greatest teaching challenge is making students aware of their own human-animal perceptions. Additionally, my goals are to help animal care professionals develop critical thinking skills and tools to employ in their interactions well past graduation.

    Foremost, I’d like to laughingly state interspecies communication followed by the more traditional areas of; companion animal behavior, health, welfare, and protection.

    Additionally, most of our highly, specialized classes are small in size and it is very enjoyable to teach in a setting that allows professional relationships to develop and last beyond the classroom.

    Interests and Hobbies:
    Exploring and experiencing different cultures and places are one of my greatest pleasures. Especially, with my husband. Excluding the time we visited a place that kept potbelly pigs outside after I insisted all our foster pigs must live in the house.
