Part-time wildlife rehabilitator
I am a licensed wildlife rehabilitator from Ohio where I run a nonprofit wildlife rescue facility. Savage Hart Wildlife began in 2010 and is located in Northwest Ohio. I accept injured and orphaned native mammals for rehabilitation and release them back into the wild when they are ready. This is a very rewarding, yet exhausting job, therefore the facility is only open seasonally during the spring and summer.
“When we return wild animals to nature, we merely return them to what is already theirs, For man cannot give wild animals freedom, they can only take it away.”
When I am not rehabbing animals, I spend a lot of time traveling. Witnessing unique wildlife wonders is my jam. Experiencing the monarch migration in Mexico has been a top favorite so far. But kayaking and swimming in bio bays in Puerto Rico and Costa Rica are up there too. And let’s not fail to mention my recent trip to Africa!
Our family travel destinations include The United States (mostly road-tripping and lots of National Parks), Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, and many islands in the Caribbean. Our solo travel destinations include Africa, Japan, and Afghanistan.
Full-time mom, wife, and teacher
I also have the full time gig of being a mom of 2.
I am the proud wife of an Army veteran and private contractor for 17 years. So he keeps us on the move and we are currently living in Georgia.
I also homeschool our kids so that we have the freedom to travel. And what better education for them, than to travel, experience other cultures, and see wild animals in their natural habitat?!
