For The Love
As a child, Seth spent all his time learning about animals; at 19, he adopted his first parrot – Zoe the Macaw.
In an effort to socialize Zoe, Seth would regularly volunteer at his local Long-Term Care Home. These interactions enriched the lives of many senior residents (and Zoe), and became a positive experience that steered Seth into a lifelong career.
