Maria, the youngest of our bunch. How grateful we are to have her on our team. Maria has the gift of giving words to all the communication and interaction that takes place between human and more than human. She has a way with animals and words that always lifts up our hearts. She can magically articulate how we feel about Sam, Melief and the piglets, which we wish for the world to experience as well.


Sometimes you meet someone who has a quality without a name, but that you can feel in your bones. Maria has that quality. Her gentle nature, her loving humor and kind presence is something that not only we enjoy, but the animals as well. To be able to transcend words and to connect on a deeper level is something we hope to learn, and something Maria has been gifted with.
