Petra grew up in the foothills of the Alps in Germany and now lives in Tinley Park, a suburb of Chicago, Illinois, with her partner and their two dogs and cat. A foster mom to many cats and dogs, Petra loves spending time outdoors – whether she is hiking, biking, gardening, horseback riding or supporting nature and wildlife preservation. Another one of her passions is traveling to locations “off the beaten path.” She recently took a memorable trip to Vieques, Puerto Rico, where she encountered free roaming horses, enjoyed a new moon kayak ride in the bioluminescent bay and hiked to hidden waterfalls in the rainforest.
