My two boys are nearly vegan and my husband is nearly vegetarian. My six cats are carnivorous as they should be.
I began my work for animals in 1990. I was President and Treasurer of Animal Advocates for 8Y, served on the Boards of PA Legislative Animal Network and Animal Aid & Placement Service, was instrumental in passing into law the only protective legislation for rabbits in the state of PA, created PA Legislative Animal Network PAC, was asked by former Mayor Tom Murphy to serve on his task force, Special Team on Pittsburgh Pets, co-founded Homeless Cat Management Team and served as their Treasurer for 9Y, and have served on the Board of Animal Friends since 2008. I believe we can all live wonderfully fulfilling lives without exploiting other species.
camaraderie with like-minded individuals
I've been a vegetarian for 25Y and vegan for the last 5Y. My two boys are nearly vegan. I'm so passionate about veganism that I left my finance career to become a plant-based nutrition counselor.
