Rebecca has been a wildlife rehabilitator in Texas since 1994, but has a long history of volunteering at centers since the mid-80s. In 1997, she founded Lone Star Wildlife Rescue. Her group takes care of all native Texas wildlife, but specializes in deer and raptors, including eagles.
Rebecca has been sharing her experience with IWRC students throughout the country and abroad since 2000. She has a love of teaching and spent many years at sea on a research vessel as First Scientist for the Sea Education Association. Her duties included running the lab, quality control, lectures to students on a variety of oceanic/environmental topics as well as rehabbing the occasional wayward bird that landed on the deck.
Besides rehabbing, her passions are birds and horses.
