From the time she was 8 years old Brittany has been actively pursuing her dream of working with wolves in captivity. As a little girl she began by writing letters to facilities across the country, inquiring about what she needed to do in order to achieve this dream.

She went on to attend college at the University of Wisconsin – River Falls, focusing her studies on Biology and completing her first internship in which she cared for a large pack of wolves at a northern Idaho facility.

Upon graduating, she has traveled from one end of the country to the next, caring for a wide variety of exotic animals along the way. From carnivores to primates to reptiles and more, countless creatures have managed to find their way into her heart over the past few years – and while working with each of them has been life-changing, she jumped at the opportunity to work with her favorite animals right here at the Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary.
