As the Project Manager at Petpedia.co, I have finally found my place in this wild world of career choices. I can now finally share my love for animals, nature, and all the information I have gathered over the years since that first book report on Jane Goodall in the 3rd grade.

This pivotal moment in my life was not only the beginning of my yearning to learn as much as possible about animals, but opened up the world of reading and sharing what I’ve absorbed through writing.

Over the years, my love for animals grew to where I aimed my interests in studying marine biology. After two years into my studies and many hours scuba diving, I realized that even though I had a knack with animals and research, chemistry was my kryptonite. Defeated by chemistry, I diverted my path and set my sights on growing in the competitive Miami hospitality industry.

However, life works in mysterious ways. After living 20 years in the United States and achieving my goal of becoming the leading sales representative in the hotel I worked at, one day I woke up and bought a ticket back to my homeland, Bulgaria. This new change had its challenges, but many opportunities as well. I was able to bring back to life my desire and interest in research and jumped into the world of freelance writing until I finally found my place at Petpedia.co. I can finally go back to my first dream of researching everything to do with animals and sharing my findings through writing.

When I’m not balancing working and being supermom, you can find me roaming the streets with my daughter helping the many stray and wild animals in our community, fighting over a bone with our two crazy dogs, or cuddled up with a good book while listening to my collection of records. I spend the rest of my free time looking for and restoring antiques or crafting with my daughter.

If chemistry is my kryptonite, my superpower is talking your ears off. With that said, be thankful I didn’t set my sights on working in the radio industry.
