I was a vegetarian for 11 years before switching to vegan last year. I have loved animals my whole life, especially cats. I have six kitties and I sponsor a chicken named Helen at Poplar Springs Farm Animal Sanctuary. Music is pretty much my entire life and has saved me more times than I can count, it's the words I need when I can't speak.
I grew up in upstate NY, my grandparents have a farm here and that's where I think I first connected the cute little animals with what was actually on my plate. Ever since I came to that realization I have made it my mission to educate myself about compassionate living and spreading the word!
