What is Swan Sanctuary


About me

Under the guidance of Dr. William J. L. Sladen, to whom Swan Sanctuary's Guide to Responsible Swan Stewardship is dedicated, I helped to care for a collection of over 70 swans in Virginia - first as a volunteer, then as a contractor/consultant.

I am the sole proprietor of Swan Sanctuary, which I founded in 2010. Profits from the sale of this book will go to promote the care of swans and to acquire more land and ponds to serve as their habitat.

I have also completed Master Gardener training and the Master Naturalist course. My story "My New Year's Garden" appeared in the GreenPrints Winter 2002-2003 issue.

I am available for consultations on swan care and also continue to write and garden.
