Samantha Jarvis always knew she wanted to help protect animals under the Endangered Species Act. Her background includes special event permitting and providing educational programs through New Mexico and Florida ecosystems, nature centers and museums. As a teenager and throughout college, she volunteered within the local animal community by fostering dogs, kittens, and help raise money for spay and neuter clinics. She enjoys spending time in her yard with her 2 year old son, 3 chihuahuas, 3 chickens, 2 rabbits, 2 cats, and 1 very large tortoise named Rocket.
Stephanie Kedzuf has been working with sea turtles for over 10 years. She began by volunteering at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton while in college and later earned her graduate degree working with sea turtles. Stephanie enjoys teaching people of all ages about sea turtle conservation and how everyone can do their part to make the planet better. In her free time, she enjoys SCUBA diving, baking, and cuddling with her cat.
As you can see, we both love animals (especially cats!) 😊
