Ariel Heldt

Ariel's favorite thing to do is snuggle with her cat and dog, preferably at the same time. She has always loved animals and nature which led her to begin volunteering for Leslie in 2013. She is now super excited to share her enthusiasm for Leslie's critters with the public as an educator. Ariel also enjoys going birding, reading, cross stitch, and board games.
