Kristina N. Lotz, Contributing Writer
Kristina N. Lotz, lifelong pet owner and lover, has made a career out of her passion. Her extensive animal knowledge stems from a lifetime of learning about all things animals in her personal and professional life. Growing up, she owned and loved all kinds of animals, from gerbils and koi to horses and sheep, and everything in-between. In high school, she helped start and competed on the equestrian team. While in college, she worked as a manager at two of the major pet retailing chains and also helped open a dog supply store. After getting a B.A in English and an MBA, she did marketing and pr for a vocational college specializing in animal careers. Currently, Kristina is attending school for a second Masters degree in Education and her single-subject teaching credential, while working as a publicist. In her spare time, she freelance writes for several pet-related outlets, including DogChannel.com, shows her two Shetland sheepdogs, fosters rescue kitties, and runs her own Disney-related blog, www.mousecrafts.com. She resides in Orange County, California with her husband, Brent, a vet technician, and their fur kids: Sassy, a ragdoll/birman, Roxy, a domestic shorthair, and Irish and Skye, their Shetland sheepdogs.
