Ame Vanorio, Ms ed, Founder and Director
Ame has been a long time organic farmer, off grid homesteader, and educator. She has graduate degrees in Education and Environmental Science, has completed the training for Project Wet and Wild and is currently taking classes in Veterinary Technology. She has taught science in public, private and home schools as well as at the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History and for the National Wildlife Federation. She is also a freelance writer at www.foxrunwritingservices.com and published her first book - Kick the Grocery Store Goodbye: Three Years to Food Self Sufficiency . She is working on her second book about Green Building. She teaches a variety of classes on the farm, for local schools and scout groups and online. Ame has always had a deep reverence and concern for native wildlife and the farm has several areas dedicated to preserving wildlife habitat. It was a natural extension for her to become a Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator. In doing so she became aware of the tremendous need for rehabilitation services as well as education concerning wildlife. So Fox Run Environmental Education Center was born!!
