Education: Mrs. Callaghan received her Bachelor's degree in English at Binghamton University in New York. In 2007 she got her Master's degree in Science Education from Oregon State University.
Volunteer Work: Since 1995 Ms. Callaghan has volunteered at Chintimini Wildlife Center in Corvallis, where she trains and works with birds of prey, including a Red-tailed Hawk and a Great-horned Owl. Chintimini Wildlife Center treats over 1,000 injured and orphaned animals a year, giving them medical care so they can be released back into the wild. They treat mammals, birds, and reptiles; everything from bobcats and foxes to bald eagles, hummingbirds, and even turtles, snakes, and bats. Their Education Program fosters a connection between people and wildlife using birds of prey that, due to permanent injuries, are non-releasable because they could not survive in the wild.
