Lori J Wheeler

I have been an NYS-licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator since 2018, acquiring a Class II license in 2021 and adding an RVS license on October 21st of 2022.  I specialize in small mammals, with a special interest in opossums and cottontails.  I enjoy offering educational opportunities to the public specifically on wildlife rehabilitation and how humans can safely and peacefully coexist with native wildlife.  In addition to wildlife, I worked for a couple of years with native and exotic species for a program that provided educational experiences to the public.

I have an Associate of Science degree and have nearly completed a Bachelor of Science in Human Services.  I spent thirty-eight years working in the Human Services field in a variety of roles that enabled me to advocate for and support individuals with disabilities to meet their personal goals.  In March 2021, I made the decision to seek early retirement to focus my time and resources on wildlife rehabilitation.
