It is with great pleasure that we introduce a new Moderator to the Forums, EchosMom (EM). She has been a prolific contributor with great backup and I hope you all will be as pleased as we are to welcome her to the staff. She will definitely be able to fill in some blanks that we need help with! Her medicine and training experience are a wonderful addition. smile

Well no, it wasn't big news before, but it was an ambition of mine. But it IS big news now! LOL!

I'm thrilled, and honored, needless to say!

It's no secret that I love birds, am an advocate for their welfare, and I'm anti-breeding/selling/buying of all all birds, regardless of size. But it the 'Toos that a hold a special place in my heart and soul, because I believe that they are often the most misunderstood, and suffer from captivity the most. There are no hard stats to quote, but being actively involved in the rescue community, I have seen for myself that cockatoos have become the most often relinquished and difficult to place species of all. There just aren't enough good homes!!

My primary role as Co-Director at The Central Virginia Sanctuary (a/k/a Project Perry) is to help caretakers with a desire to keep their bird,but frustrated with problem behaviors, replace those behaviors with new behaviors,that promote successful companionship. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the core of my coaching. Hands down - request for assistance with cockatoos ranks #1.

I stumbled upon Mytoos close to 7 years ago when I impulse purchased (EEEKK!) my M2 Echo at the ripe old age of 16 weeks (DOUBLE EEEKK!). I have learned so much from the folks here. And I'm still learning!!

To Charlie, Michael and all the Mods - thank you for the confidence and inviting me to be a part of the Moderating team here. I'm THRILLED!!
