Desi Milpacher

Director

Desi Milpacher grew up loving animals — rabbits, cats, horses and the occasional rescued kestrel were her boon companions. Once in university she studied biology and other sciences, eventually graduating with a diploma in Animal Health Technology (AHT) from Thompson Rivers University in British Columbia, Canada. Most of her work afterward involved animal care — looking after others’ beloved pets. Then she discovered parrots, thanks to her now-husband Steve. Once the bug bit, it bit hard, and as a result she has raised or kept parrots for over 15 years. Desi is currently employed with the World Parrot Trust as the Online Editor, and has been a volunteer for many years. Her duties include publishing the monthly newsletter, website development and maintenance, writing, editing, researching and marketing. Desi looks forward to continuing to use these skills for the efforts of the OASES group.
