I have been an animal lover my entire life. As a person with autism, I have limited and passionate interests. When I was young, I had hundreds of stuffed animals and plastic animal toys that I played with daily. As a teenager, I volunteered at the Denver Zoo for 4 years and also attended sleepover camps at SeaWorld. After high school, I participated in the Zoo Keeping Technology Program at PPCC, but it wasn’t a good fit for me. As an adult, I have volunteered at many humane societies, mostly working with cats.
For my entire life, I have loved going to zoos and animal parks. In fact, I have visited more than 30 in the United States and also had amazing animal adventures in both Australia and Africa. I love reading animal books and watching animal documentaries. When Animal Planet first came on the air (I was 10 years old), I would watch it all day long if I had the chance. Steve Irwin was my childhood hero. Unfortunately, I never got to meet him, but I did meet 3 other awesome animal experts, Jeff Corwin, Jack Hanna, and Jane Goodall.
As you can see, I am very passionate about animals and I love spending time with them. Which is why I started Pets Pizzazz. I love making Snuffle Mats and Catnip Knots and running my own business. Pets Pizzazz is the perfect way for me to share my love of animals with you. Thank you for supporting my business!
