I have loved animals my entire life. When I was a little girl, my parents always tried to shield me from animal cruelty or dead animals in the road because I've always been sensitive. When I was 10-years-old, I learned about the steel jaw leg hold trap. My dad found me crying in my room and told me I could either sit there and cry and know it would not help animals or I could take action and try to do something. That was a critical moment in my life; I wanted to take the path of least resistance but I knew I had to do something because I hate injustice in any form. The next day he helped me get my 5th grade class to sign a petition to ban the leg hold trap and sent it to our congressman. The story made the local news ("Ten-year-old speaks up for animals") and I was interviewed by every local media outlet. Everywhere I went people recognized me. I quickly learned that if you have something to share that crying in my room was not the way to raise awareness. I became more outspoken about animal issues and after college, I worked for many of the largest nonprofit animal rights, animal protection agencies, and animal shelters. I also went vegetarian because I always knew animals were not here for us to eat. My love and advocacy for animals led me to my career and I've been a publicist for the majority of my life. I also have an extensive background in marketing and advertising. I'm also a freelance journalist and photographer and write for several dog websites and parenting magazines. I currently work as the development director for a Jewish nonprofit agency that helps people in need including Holocaust survivors and survivors of domestic abuse.
I'm an extremely loyal and passionate person. If I say I am going to do something, I will do it. My integrity and reputation are extremely important to me and I have no time for game players, rude people, people who think they are superior to others and people who are selfish. I will go out of my way to be nice to someone and I often pay for the coffee for the stranger behind me in the Starbucks drive through line.
I am a very self-reliant person and even though I'm very tiny, I have been told I have a big personality. I'm a very social person and have friends from all walks of life. I have two amazing tween daughters. "A" students, vegetarians, guitar players, National Junior Honor Society members and animal rescuers who help me foster animals for the shelter. They were born extremely early and spent months in the NICU. In an effort to show my extreme gratitude for their health, I created a nonprofit charity and donated state-of-the-art incubators to the hospital that saved their lives. I'm devoted to my daughters and they give me the most joy in my life.
