Meet the Humane Educators of the Humane Society of Broward County

Caroline Crane

V.P. of Education’s 

Hi, my name is Caroline Crane. I was born and raised in Michigan and moved to South Florida over 40 years ago. I began working at the Humane Society of Broward County in 1994 as a veterinary technician. 

Education has always been a cornerstone in my life. My bachelor’s degree is in Elementary Education and I have a master’s degree in Humane Education. 

I have been the Vice President of the Education Department for over 30 years and have worked first hand on many of the programs and initiatives that are in place today. One of my favorite aspects of my job is being able to watch the shift in a child’s view of the world as they take in the lessons we teach and develop into empathic and devoted animal advocates.

Darlene Feldman

Humane Education Coordinator

Hi! My name is Darlene Feldman. I am a native New Yorker who has resided in S. Florida since 1983. My two sons were raised here and I’m fortunate enough that one of them and his family live close by.

I have been an educator for most of my adult life. I have a BA in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Education with a specialization in reading.

I taught kindergarten, 1st grade, math enrichment and was a reading specialist at a school for children with learning disabilities, with a total of 17 years of teaching experience.

I first came to the shelter as a volunteer 18 years ago. I came in weekly to provide the shelter dogs with pets, affection and love. I have always been a dog lover and have adopted from the shelter twice. I also volunteered at Kid’s Clubs, camps, and did presentations both at the shelter and at schools. I transitioned to becoming an employee 13 years ago and I have worked in the Education Department since. Some of my responsibilities are scheduling events for our department, overseeing the Teen Club and Friends of Animals Club, doing tours and presentations and assisting in both our camp programs and kid’s clubs. I enjoy bringing the mission of the Humane Society to help educate children and adults about the plight of homeless animals while using the teaching skills that I have developed throughout the years.

Katie Tutt

Community Programs Coordinator

Animal Assisted Therapy Program Manager

Hi, my name is Katie Tutt. I am a South Florida native with a passion for working with animals and helping people. I began working at the Humane Society of Broward County in August 2012 as an Adoptions Counselor and soon after joined the Education Department as the Special Programs Coordinator. 

Prior to working at HSBC, I worked in Education and Parks and Recreation. I have over 18 years of experience working with children and over 25 years of experience working with small and large animals. My bachelor’s degree is in Sociology, and a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Both degrees have enabled me to gain valuable experience and knowledge which I apply to working with the community and contribute to the HSBC mission as well as promoting the healing powers of the human-animal bond through animal assisted therapy.
