Mark & Heather met in 2010, after Heather was 2 weeks into her new job at the same Agency Mark had worked for since 2008. They fell in love almost immediately, and were married in November 2011.

Their work together on the Severna Park Osprey stand & camera project planted the seed for interceding and making a positive difference in the lives of birds of prey.
 
Over the next year, as they contemplated how to further that effort, it became clear that they both shared this passion, and wanted to help in a hands-on, tangible way, allowing them to directly see the impact and benefit to the birds.
 
After locating Owl Moon Raptor Center, the only dedicated raptor rehab facility in Maryland, they began volunteering there, and were quickly impressed by the need, the level of care provided, the extraordinary knowledge, skill, and experience that Suzanne Shoemaker possessed, and how much she cared.
 
Given their proximity to the Chesapeake Bay, and seeing a local need for raptor care, they felt that the best way to put their passion and interest into action would be for them to pursue becoming licensed raptor rehabilitators and to open a dedicated raptor center in the Severna Park, MD area.
