We are thrilled to welcome Raven to our board!
Raven Hickson is a graduate of Cornell University, where she studied Animal Science, concentrating in animal behavior. Currently, Raven is the barn manager at Dream On Farm and runs her own animal training business, Clicker Tails. Raven has also been a zookeeper, high school animal science teacher, outdoor educator, and mustang tamer. Raven became involved with Healing Companions after meeting Jane at Dream On Farm and volunteering her clicker training skills at the prison with rescue dogs and their handlers. She is excited to continue supporting Healing Companions through training and local community outreach.
Raven has already been an asset to our program as she has generously volunteered her time, knowledge and dedication to our program. She has joined us at the prison where she provided presentations that the inmates devoured focused on the science behind clicker training and shaping. I am excited that she would like to continue to contribute to our inmate program through educational and training opportunities. She also volunteered at dog events where we had tables advertising our organization. Having a local board member is such an asset to our local fundraisers.
