In my role as Senior Director of Shelter Training for the ASPCA, I oversee curriculum design and delivery of ASPCA Meet Your Match® adoption program workshops – including Meet the Adopters, Canine-ality and Feline-ality; SAFER Certification courses; and a variety of e-Learning courses on shelter operations topics. I supervise a qualified team of ASPCA staff and contract trainers. Prior to joining the ASPCA in 2008, I was the Director of Operations at the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland, Maine, where I oversaw the implementation of SAFER, Canine-ality and Feline-ality which led to dramatic, sustained increases in adoptions and decreases in euthanasia in the state’s largest full-service, open admission shelter. I remain involved in the work of local animal welfare organizations.
