Hi, my name is Shellie.
I’m a fourth generation Colorado native and I whimsically attribute my love of animals to an event that happened when I was two years old. My family went on vacation to Florida; and, while at Sea World, I was selected to sit on Shamu’s back as part of the performance. From that point on, my love and dedication to animals continued to grow.
Our extended family included dogs, cats, hamsters, rabbits, fish, and even a snake. I've volunteered at the Denver Zoo for over 5 years working with all manners of birds, reptiles and large and small mammals.
In college I definitely knew that I wanted to specialize in. I received my Bachelor of Science degree, with a double major in Zoo Science and Field Biology, from Friends University, in Wichita, KS.
Animals have brought such joy to my life, I feel compelled to provide them with the safest, most loving and playful environment possible.
Thank you for visiting my website and I look forward to meeting you and your best friend.
