My name is Maria Dishman. I’ve been in Lawrence for 6 years, but spent the first 30 years of my life in the KC Metro (mostly Olathe). I worked with several engineering firms and the department of engineering at KU for many years, but now spend my entire time serving and loving on animals with aspirations of becoming a groomer.
I am married, and we have a Bengal Cat named Bandit. He is the real boss in my life. Many years ago I did have a husky so I am well aware of high energy animals who are also very vocal. Bengals like to talk just as much as huskies. In my free time I do art with my husband, painting, tie dye, letter press, and macramé.
