CSJ and LHCOS is thrilled to welcome Stephanie B. to our Local Representatives team!
Stephanie will be a Local Rep for upstate New York.
A little bit about me: I live in upstate New York-at the tippy top in the Adirondack region. I’m a mother of two humans, eight hermit crabs, one betta fish, soon to be one bearded dragon, and one husband. I enjoy naps, reading, and relaxing hot baths-all of which rarely happen because I have two humans children, eight hermit crabs, one betta fish, and a husband.
Like a few members here, I became a hermit crab owner/enthusiasts through my children, and very quickly fell in love and became a little obsessed. My sister gifted us two hermit crabs she no longer wanted, and when they arrived in purple sand I began my research. I read countless hours of information on Google and ended up more confused than ever, until I stumbled upon CSJ on instagram. I dove into the website and then linked up with LHCOS on Facebook. Through this group I have gained so much knowledge, and experience, and amazing advice and comfort when I felt like I was completely failing at this crab mom thing. I’ve made amazing friendships and am blown away by the community surrounding these tiny creatures. One of my favorite things about keeping crabs is the never ending knowledge. We’re all constantly learning as new research is done.
