About Heart of Feathers Education & Training

Heart of Feathers Education & Training was established in 2015 by Sheila S. B., UW-AAB, CPBC, MBA.   Sheila volunteered at a local rescue, and saw a need to assist those with companion birds.  

Heart of Feathers Education & Training's goal is to educate on compassion and cooperative companion bird behavior training.

Additionally, Sheila volunteers at local rescues. While working with the rescue, she may foster a companion bird with undesired behavior. Fostering assists with keeping her skills up to date through learning and hands on experience and will assist in improving the behavior of the bird to get adopted.

She passes her professional knowledge and experience to her clients (as well as relating to the client's situation).
