"I grew up in a farm community and had animals all around me since I was born. I had always had a desire to try and fix things... even animals. I would nurse them back to health whenever I could. Everything from baby rabbits, birds with broken wings, raising cockatiels and peach face love birds, and we even had chickens. I remember my first pet was a frog... but we had two beagles and a few cats as well. I JUST truly love all animals!"
