About the Author

I have been involved in the rabbit world since 2002.  My enthusiasm for the hobby enabled me to accomplish several of my rabbit project goals, particularly in the area of ARBA youth contests. I  love learning and coaching others, because I believe that understanding is a key to success in any area of life.  My experience as a 4-H teen leader led to the creation of Rabbit Smarties: the Rabbit Activity Book and the Youth Rabbit Project Study Guide. These publications quickly found success in the rabbit show world, and now the Rabbit Smarties company offers you a variety of resources to help your rabbitry excel.
