Our dear Katrina- the sweetest and most bendable girl on the team :) Katrina is a fun person to have around while on the road, or anytime for that matter. She just graduated from Guelph University (yep, another one!) in Wildlife Biology. Thanks to her herpatology field course at Queens U in Kingston, she is also our resident amphibian expert! She's great to have along on any trail, because she'll be sure to spot little critters sliding through the grass that anyone else would just breeze right past. One very cool thing about Kat is that she is actually a gymnastics coach! This has got to be a first for any of the Reptiles at Risk crew members- and boy does she rock those backflips. She's entertained some lingering crowds with her stunts here and there, but we've yet to start a show with a triple flip one-handed backspring with turtle in hand ;) Personally, I think it could be fun, but what do I know.
Katrina is always ready with a laugh, and keeps as all going with her sunny disposition. Of all her favourite things, the one we hear about most is her little puppy back home. Any time we pass other dogs you can be sure Katrina will be the first to 'awww' and tell us the latest adorable thing her pup has learned to do. Very cute! She is great at posing for ridiculous photos, and is a mean competitor in mini golf. Another of her favourite things I'd have to say is post-boxes. When she's not reading her 'Water for Elephants' novel, she's probably writing yet another postcard to be sent from our next small town stop.
One of Katrina's arch-nemesis' are, believe it or not, chipmunks. They have even been known to stalk Katrina in the night, crawling up through the wheel-well in our old trailer and onto her legs in her bed in the middle of the night. Never mind snakes- it's the rodents you have to watch out for!
Hard to believe our summer is coming so soon to a close, it's been fun times Katherine ;)
