Jennifer Monahan grew up in Washington, D.C. and the suburbs of Maryland.
We have a lot in common, Jennifer and I!
Throughout her life she has owned a wide variety of pets and loves all animals. She cared for rabbits, parakeets, kittens, dogs, and hamsters as a young child. As an adult, she expanded her love of critters to include Australian animals as well.
At the age of 13, when her family moved to Maryland, she and her sister were given horses. Jennifer learned to communicate with these large animals and a mutual trust developed between her and her new friends.
She traveled to horse shows, rode on trails, and took her horse swimming in lakes and creeks. This experience helped tremendously when Jennifer took a job with the U.S. Forest Service as a surveyor near Jackson Hole, WY. Her mode of transportation to and from the job site was on horseback.
I wanted to talk to her, especially since she is the author of “An American in Oz: Discovering the Island Continent of Australia.”
Today, she told me all about her trip to Australia that she took over the turn of the millennium.
While in the land down under for two months, she discovered a unique landscape, wildlife, and way of life found only in a land called “Oz.”
Australia is a beautiful country filled with the friendliest people you will ever meet, and the craziest critters you will ever hear about. It’s a country worth traveling to as often as possible. There are many animals just like ours, and many so strange and different from what we know here in the States that you will find yourself saying, “We are definitely not in Kansas anymore!”
Listen and learn about:
- The most interesting Australian animals she discovered during her trip
- Other odd and unusual animals in Australia on land or in the sea
- Jennifer’s message: Love your animals. Listen to them, care for them, and they will love you back unconditionally.
She currently lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and two very cool cats.
