Steph dawes

Stephanie began her career in Hotel and Catering management and enjoyed a successful hospitality career with amongst others Marriott Hotels in both Europe and Australia. Wanting to become more involved in the animal welfare world, she transitioned to work for what was then the World Society for the Protection of Animals in London.


A move from London to the Caribbean, living in the Bahamas, Grenada and Barbados gave her fantastic opportunities to get more involved and to learn more about the challenges facing cats and dogs living in island communities. The Caribbean was followed by time in Florida, working and volunteering at the Jacksonville Humane Society, she then moved to Portland, Oregon and is extremely proud to have been a part of Animal Balance since 2013.


She is currently pursuing a biology degree and is also passionate about being a marine naturalist creating awareness of the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whale community in the Pacific Northwest.

The mission of Animal Balance is to collaborate with communities in need to create sustainable animal management programs to prevent suffering and ignite social change.
