I am a retired US Navy Chief Petty Officer and currently work as a Senior Recruiter for Allstate Insurance at the NW Regional Office where I look for individuals to be Agent/Owners.
I have owned and bred birds off and on for nearly 30 years. I currently have zebras, societies, and canaries. I have shown many types of birds and enjoy attending the shows and talking to people about the birds they own. I take time to discuss with the non NFSS members the benefits of becoming a member of our great organization.
I find it rewarding to see new exhibitors attend the shows and see the progress they make from year to year; it is great to see young exhibitors with such nice birds.
