Meet Our Apprentices
Liza Mae (L’Mae) Carlin
L’Mae is an experienced apprentice with A.E.R.O. and lives in Upperville, Fauquier Country. Her love of working with wildlife began while she lived in New York. She found an injured pigeon and became involved with the city’s wildlife rehab clinic, the Wild Bird Fund (WBF). She worked with a large variety of birds and became a NY state licensed rehabber as well as a board member of WBF. After relocating to Virginia in 2020, she introduced herself to local licensed rehabilitators. The next year, she found A.E.R.O. where she became a licensed apprentice. She points out that the wildlife in Virginia face many different challenges than those of the city which has given her the opportunity to learn whole new sets of skills.
