2013 - OPERATION: ball python After nearly 9 years in the pet retail business, it finally happened. I purchased my first ball python morph - a hatchling female Butter Pastel. One became four, which turned into 16 within the next 18 months, and before too long I was pairing these beautiful animals.
Fast forward to 2015 when, on July 3, I hatched my first clutch of designer ball pythons - 6 healthy babies from a clutch of 6 good eggs. If I wasn't sure before, that day sealed the deal: this is where I belong. I am on the most amazing journey of my professional life, and am excited share it with you.
There is truly something for everyone when it comes to ball pythons, and that's exactly why I love them. They are the perfect combination of art and science - diverse works of living genetic art.
2004 - Two worlds combine I have always been a creative person with a place in my heart for all animals - soft and scaley. While pursuing my bachelor's of science degree in Microbiology in Tempe, AZ, I took a part-time job in the pet retail business. How blissfully unaware I was at the time that those two interests, animals and the sciences, would so naturally come together several years later.
After earning my degree, I quickly learned my true calling was to become a full-time "pet retail junkie". I continued to educate myself in quality animal care in order to best help my customers and their pets.
