It's that compassion for animals that has driven her to help countless animals over the last two decades and encourage others to do so as well.
But it's not just compassion. When asked how she responds to people who view her work as a waste of time, she explains that her work doesn't only come from the heart. It comes from the head too. In her eyes, saving each individual animal is a way to counterbalance the devastation that humans have brought to wild animals.
"Each and every day, just by living, we mess up our ecosystem and our world in ways that we just can't help - everything from building houses to driving to work," she explains. "If it's OK to negatively impact nature, I think it's OK to once in awhile positively impact it, too.
"They're just an important part of our whole world. For our very survival, we need to keep them alive, because we're so connected and for every species we lose, it's hurting the entire system."
