As one of Hollywood’s most in-demand animal trainers, she’s responsible for training the pigs in the upcoming Jurassic World movie (shot mostly here in the Islands), for getting us to coo and fawn over the puppy who made friends with the famous Budweiser Clydesdale horses in those Super Bowl commercials, and for making the Aflac insurance duck one of the most recognizable company mascots on television.
