Where I've Been

I’ve had a multitude of life adventures.  I’ve traveled to Borneo Indonesia to study and film the endangered orangutan, authored and self-published the book, Small Shoes, written a family friendly feature film, IZZIES WAY HOME, been a 2 x speaker at Mike Dooley’s Infinite Possibilities Train the Trainer Conference, starred in many televisions commercials and short films. I’ve cleaned toilets at a day job, lived in a house where my bedroom window was held to the frame with duct tape, slept on an air mattress that my rescue cat used as her scratching post (you can figure that out) and have struggled with self-doubt, heartbreak and family illness. And through it all, I’ve looked to animals and nature for comfort and guidance.  I feel that it is part of my mission to be a voice and create positive change on behalf of animals and the environment AND educate, inspire and empower others, especially kids, to do the same!
