Some highlights of those years include the development of breeding and husbandry protocols for birds of paradise, with a trip to Indonesia to share information. She had an interesting stint as a licensed massage therapist with clients that included a penguin, an alligator, and a camel. In her spare time she does volunteer work in West Virginia and Bed-Stuy Brooklyn, and enjoys Irish set dancing.
