“I am also thrilled to say that we have a director of social media, said Wayne Pacelle, president of Animal Wellness Action and the Center for a Humane Economy. “Ryan is exceptional at creative visual work, especially in video production and we are excited to charge ahead with his help to make the world a better place for animals.”

“I joined AWA and CHE because I knew I could be making more of a positive impact on the world. My wife and I love animals, from pets to wildlife, and we both knew that this was the kind of foundation that aims to save and show compassion to all creatures on Earth,” said Ryan Luterman-Sevel.
