I’m an anthropologist, animal activist, writer, and human-animal studies scholar.

I teach at Canisius College, in the Anthrozoology program, and for the past 15 years, I was the Human-Animal Studies Program Director at the Animals & Society Institute. I’ve been actively involved with House Rabbit Society for 30 years, acting as President for 14 years.  I’m also a victim advocate for the Marion County District Attorney’s office.

I love rabbits, chihuahuas, wombats and sloths.

I’m a knitter, a gardener, and a true crime fanatic.
