Justice Bellar, CPBT-KA, shares a life-long love for animals. Her passion for tough little ones lead her to work with shelter rescues in 2015. In 2017 she joined the team at The Gabriel Foundation, one of the world’s largest parrot sanctuary and adoption organization. In time, Justice became the Behavior and Training Coordinator, managing a parrot behavior training case load both internally, overseeing as-needed training for the sanctuary parrots on the premises, as well as post-adoption support families. She also developed and taught workshops in parrot behavior. Justice holds her avian training certification through the International Avian Certification Board (IATCB). Justice also graduated from Dr. Susan Friedman’s Professional Learning and Living with Animals course. Justice shares her home with three adopted parrots- Jimmy the yellow naped amazon, Snickers the umbrella cockatoo, and Tikka the blue and gold macaw. She spends her downtime gardening, hanging out with her trio of parrots, and playing cello – sometimes with accompaniment from her band, and sometimes with accompaniment from her birds!
