Owner/President/Executive Director/CEO

Ms. Hubbard was raised on a small ten acre farm in the woods of Brooksville, Florida, with lots of animals. She’s actively cared for a variety of pets since she was a small child. These early experiences impacted her in a profound way. Later, she noticed a distinct lack of animal care in her area when owners traveled on vacation. The owners often boarded their pets with a vet, typically in cages. Wildcat asked, “Who wants to stay in a cage all day?” The answer – No one!

She has handled horses, rabbits, ferrets, cats, dogs, birds, hamsters and gerbils. Years ago, Christi discovered an ability to catch and hold any animal whether feral or domestic, regardless of bites and claws. She’s also hand raised animal babies that were abandoned, sick or just taken too soon from their mother to ensure their health and well being. Her love of animals is partially the reason she earned the moniker “Wildcat”.  She also showed the tenacity of a wild cat in her fighting techniques during her police academy training, so “Wildcat” was a natural fit.

Throughout her adult life, Ms. Hubbard has gained a lot of different understanding through a lot of diverse work experiences. Ms. Hubbard has worked in Law Enforcement, and has two associates degree, one in Law Enforcement and the other in Criminology. She has earned multiple certificates and gathered a long line of military connections, which include her dad, a Marine, her nephew in the Air Force, a cousin and brother in law both in the Army. A father in law also retired from the Navy. Wildcat Hubbard worked for three years for the local Sheriffs office. For fifteen years, she worked as a receptionist, then two years as a teller. After that, she spent five years in security. She’s also done house and pet sitting and volunteering.  She used to work for Waldenbooks as Keyholder, Book Seller, and Assistant Manager fill in for over 2 years.

Ms. Hubbard’s love of books has been evident throughout her life, through her experience in working in bookstores and a collection of books contained within her non-profit that spans over 6,000 titles. It wasn’t until after she published her own books, Helpful Tips for Any Type of Business and Helpful Tips for Any Type of Business Part II: The expanded Edition that For Love of Books became a solid idea.

For Love of Books plans on opening a brick and mortar shop and for now, the only titles available are a limited selection. However, joining our mailing list will keep you up to date with the latest news on For Love of Books and any new arrivals. http://forloveofbooks.com/

One thought on “Team”

  1. Hi Michael

    The animal rescue thing is totally cool.

    We have horse rescue here and our family is actively involved in dog rescue and no-kill adoption programs.

    Animals and combat vets do mix well Michael, I’ve seen it, experienced it myself; and with this generation of young soldiers coming home whom viciously distrust the VA and anyone that “wasn’t there” taking the example of how the Nam Vets were treated

    Animals can do what the “weren’t there” geeks cannot.

    As one that has a TBI the last thing any veteran should get is the VA pyschopharmaceutical cure-all which impedes the ability for veterans to heal and try to be normal as possible in a world that doesn’t have a clue in hell what combat really is and what they have experienced.

    It isn’t like some computer game as alot of these kids grew up playing, combat is the for real world game where the one that comes in second gets buried.

    When I see a veteran with a canine companion or working with a horse both are happy.

    Heart and honor brother,

    Michael
