I am an author, wife, pet parent, Certified Professional Pet Sitter, owner of Theuerkauf's Tails Pet Services, and an animal advocate. I love writing stories that will inspire, entertain, and educate. I am very passionate about rescue animals and love taking an active role in my community. I currently volunteer at the APA of Missouri and Stray Rescue of St. Louis. My tripawd dog, Penny, and I help co-teach the humane education classes and help shed light on the importance of adopting differently-abled animals.
In the Beautiful Books: How A Children's Picture Book is Made presentation (Grades K-8) students will get an in-depth look at how a children's book is made and see photos of the actual storyboards used in the making of Priceless Penny.
For pre-school and kindergarten students, I offer a presentation that shows Penny's unique differences as well as my own. The goal is to educate children on the importance of being true to oneself and that being different is beautiful. This presentation also includes an interactive game.
