Cherish animals & embrace nature – SJR

Stella currently resides in Aurora, CO, but also has deep roots in Pocatello, ID and Green Bay, WI. She is passionate about animal welfare, is an outdoor adventure enthusiast, and enjoys writing country music with her guitars. In the summer, she can be found at her beloved retreat in historic Grand Lake, CO with her husband and Golden Retrievers, Goldie & Aspen (both in loving spirit). They can also be found kayaking, biking, hiking, stand up paddleboarding, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing throughout the mountainous western states. However, Redfish Lake in Stanley, ID will always be her favorite place to visit, and a place of wonder for her. Together, they operate an outdoor adventure and gear review site:http://www.basecampgrandlake.comMOOSEBASECAMP

Stella regularly supports the following charitable organizations: Beagle Freedom Project, Heartland Farm Sanctuary, Happily Ever After Animal Sanctuary, and Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies.

Further, she is proud to be an ongoing, monthly donor to Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies and Beagle Freedom Project. It is time for animal testing to stop; it is time for the dog meat market to end; it is time for people to respect ALL living creatures. She dreams about a better world for animals, and hopes someday that dream will come true. It was that dream that fueled the story of 18th Winter.
