Lee is the Operations Manager and the South East Queensland Avian Behaviour and Training consultant for Parrot Life Behaviour and Training, a parrot specific behaviour consultancy based in Australia and New Zealand.
Lee comes from a background in dog training and behaviour consulting. She started her behaviour journey in 2010, working with her mentors for 4 years before moving to the Pilbara region of Western Australia and starting her own small dog training business offering group classes, behaviour consults and educational programs.
In 2016 Lee added an Eclectus parrot to her growing menagerie of animals, and quickly became hooked. This naturally led her down a path to researching and learning all she could about parrot behaviour, training and enrichment. During this time of nerding out on all things parrot she met the team at Parrot Life and has not looked back since!
In 2018 Lee packed up and left Western Australia and moved home to Brisbane where she primarily works with parrots.
In the past 4 years Lee’s flock has grown from one to five parrots (although two are only temporary residents), her flock now includes her Eclectus, three Macaws and one Caique (Ky-eek). She also has two, long suffering, senior dogs named Keira and Phoenix.
