On this week’s episode of Animal Instinct, Celia is joined in the studio by Lorelei Tibbetts to talk all about hedgehogs!

Lorelei earned her first bachelor’s degree (in broadcast journalism) from Boston University. Realizing that this would not fulfill her dream of working with animals, she earned her second degree in veterinary technology. Since then, she has worked in New York City, where she currently is the manager of The Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine. She has worked exclusively with exotic pets since 2004, and is the chair of her veterinary technician specialty academy, The Academy for Veterinary Technicians in Clinical Practice, where she was a founding member of the Exotic Companion Animal specialty. She is passionate about exotic pet education, and enjoys lecturing at veterinary symposiums, as well as teaching students at her practice.
