    BILLINGS, MT, November 21, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Debra Harris has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Raised on a farm, Ms. Harris was naturally drawn to help animals and decided to make this passion as her career. Since 1995, she has excelled as a volunteer for ZooMontana. After working in senior animal care from 1996 until 2004, Ms. Harris worked as a pet mortician for Laurel East Pet Veterinary between 2005 and 2007.

In the years since, Ms. Harris has served as an assistant zoo curator and a veterinary assistant for ZooMontana. In this capacity, she supervised the staff and writes protocols on animal care. Additionally, she maintains exhibit design and maintenance, assists veterinarians in a variety of animal treatments, including cold laser treatments and medication delivery, and provides her voice to the Zoo's enrichment committee. A dedicated community advocate, Ms. Harris volunteered with the local chapter of the Red Cross. She also has achieved the status of Award of Arms in the Society for Creative Anachronism.

Prior to beginning her career in the field, Ms. Harris earned an Associate of Science from the Technical Institute in Staples, MN, in 1986. Due to her outstanding work in animal care, she was honored with an Award for 10 Years of Service from ZooMontana in 2004. Looking toward the future, she intends to successfully breed and create a flourishing community for the wolverines she is in charge of overseeing. Though wolverines are very private animals, which makes them difficult to breed and understand in captivity, Ms. Harris hopes to utilize her vast experience and considerable knowledge to better appreciate these unique animals.

She wrote a paper that was included in the American Association of Zoo Keepers magazine about cold laser therapy for animals.

Ms. Harris was interviewed for an article about her work at ZooMontana in Yellowstone Valley Woman magazine and interviewed in an episode by public broadcasting services in Montana on the show called Backroads of Montana for her work at ZooMontana.
