What were you doing before entering the MAPP program?
I interned at Helping Hands Monkey Helpers in Allston Massachusetts.
What aspects of MAPP led to your decision to join the program?
I have always been interested in animal welfare, the relationships they have with humans, and how to be a better advocate in terms of regulations. MAPP would be the perfect opportunity to learn more about the different aspects of animals and public policy.
Interests in and experience with animals
I have a passion for wildlife and exotic animals. I volunteered at an animal rehab center in South Africa which further confirmed my interest with these animals! I am still fascinated with small domestic and farm animals. I worked for a small animal clinic during high school as a veterinary assistant and in college as a veterinary technician.
What are your outside interests?
I love horseback riding, exercising, cooking.
Number of pets? What?
I have a horse named Trixie, a cat named Moo and a Yorkshire Terrier (lives with my parents) named Maggie
