Pons Paraclete is the culmination of personal and professional experiences as educator, zookeeper, traveler, and parent.  It is my sincere hope to humbly serve individuals and communities through intimate wildlife experiences.  One such moment determined the course of my life at a very young age, which drives me to provide similar opportunities to children who are less fortunate. Positive connections between humans and animals can transform how we all see and interact with our world.
