I work for animals. That sums up most of my life for the past 20 years or so. I consider myself an “advocate” rather than an activist, and love the fact that I have made a life out of protecting those who can’t protect themselves. I work at the Washington Humane Society in Washington DC, I’ve been there since 2007 but before that I spent many years doing several different jobs at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. We’ll get into that later but for now, let’s start with the bottom line “about” me, I work for animals.
