About the event

Since Deb's two earliest memories include picking grass at the park for her pet rabbit and taste-testing her dog's kibble for flavor, it's apparent she's been an animal lover since the very beginning. As a child that desperately wanted to work with animals for a living she was dismayed to hear every adult in her life tell her she "would have to be a veterinarian." As a young girl she couldn't stand the thought of working with sick or injured pets and as she got older she was terrified of college-level math classes so she thought her dream of animal employment would never come true. Luckily, in high school, she was mailed a Wildlife Biology pamphlet from Iowa State University and just like that the dream was alive again! Deb later graduated with that Wildlife Biology degree (albeit with a D- in Trigonometry) and became a professional naturalist and wildlife educator. She now has her own business, FrogLady Presentations, where she specializes in reptile/amphibian education. She has never used any math during her career. Ever. Deb lives in Grayslake with her husband, Chris, their son, Nicholas, the world's two cutest dogs and a large assortment of frogs, turtles, lizards and snakes.
