I ve always found pets and all animals to be amazing. I will not turn my back on stray or lost pets who need a home or a helping hand. As a contributing writer for the Responsible Pet Ownership blog, I try to help pet owners deal with specific problems.

I also enjoy politics because I believe it s our responsibility as voters to stay informed by asking questions and demanding proof from our political leaders and watching what they do and not listening to what they say.

I love playing softball, tennis, racquetball, basketball and most sports and I m an advocate for wildlife, wildlife conservation, renewable energy and protection of habitats in the U.S. and around the world.
