Maxine enjoys spending her free time with her family and animals in addition to
practicing her leatherwork. She also actively works in medical orthotics and prosthetics
as well as training horses part-time.

These include certificates in animal behavior; Bsc Psychology, Physiology and Genetics; and a BTech Medical Orthotics and Prosthetics.
Feel free to check out some of her writing samples below.
