Skip has been training animals for over 15 years; he started training marine mammals with Walt Disney World at the Living Seas at EPCOT in 1995 before moving to Sea World/Discovery Cove for 12 years where he was part of the Dolphin interaction team of trainers. As an avid waterfowl hunter, he merged into the field of training dogs for obedience and hunting retrievers. Currently Skip lives in Valdosta, GA with his wife, Carissa, who is also a Whistling Wings Associate trainer, and two boys Mason and Matthew. Skip currently works full time as part of the Management team with the Zoological Operations Department at the Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta. Skip has been affiliated with Whistling Wings Kennel since November of 2010, and we are glad to have his experience as part of our associate trainer team.
