I an a lifelong Mainer with a passion for helping animals and kids to be treated with love and respect. I am a married mother of four living in Winterport, Maine. My husband, Jess, and I owned and operated a horse rescue for years and now have switched our farm focus to humanely raising farm animals for food. I am also a special education teacher working primarily with behaviorally and emotionally challenged high school students in the public school system. My educational background includes a B.A. in Social Sciences and a B.S. in Administration of Justice. I am currently 3 courses away from a M.Ed in a program specializing in Autism Spectrum Disorders and seek to pursue a PhD in Education once I have accomplished my Masters degree.
