Hi, my name is Rachel Oppelt. I live in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada. I’m a Teacher at Abbotsford School District. I’m freelance writer as well. I like writing about crafts, DIY, pet, food, clothing and etc.
I’m not just a writer, I’m also a creative dog mom. I was born in a family where pets are an integral part of their lives. Dogs and cats were always a part of my childhood. I remember how my grandmother used to feed the stray animals. We made lots of crafts for those shelter animals.
Sarah M Wright
Hello! My name is Sarah Wright and I am an freelance author, artist, and musician starting my life on my terms.
Besides writing for SmartPaintIQ, I am working to build a nonprofit animal sanctuary to help all domestic animals, from livestock to rodent, to transition from rehabilitation to their forever home.
I have been a self starter for as long as I can remember, always preferring to make something that can help others. I have also worked with animals of varying types over the years, and I have come to learn what most animals need to lead a healthy and happy life.
I am currently building Camp Pawgress Animal Sanctuary in Washington state as well, hoping to bring it to fruition by the start of the next year.
