How did you become aware of animal issues?

I have always been aware of animal issues, but really gained a better understanding after reading Eating Animals a few years ago. I had been vegetarian for years, but not fully committed. Once I read that book (and many others since) I have found that I now have an ethical base for choosing to be vegan. It makes me feel good everyday to know that I am not contributing to the suffering of animals.

Anything else you'd like to share?

No answer yet

Do you have any pets? (Feel free to post their pictures-with names and ages-like any proud parent in "Photos")

Yes, I do. Three dogs...my running partner, Dax, is in my profile picture.

If it applies, how have you been involved in the past? And are you presently?

As a vegan personal trainer and Arbonne consultant, I regularly get the opportunity to talk to people about the benefits of a plant based diet.

What is(are) your main area(s) of concern regarding animal issues?

Factory farming is at the forefront of my reason for being vegan, but all animals deserved to be treated equally. So if it involves an animal, it matters to me.
