Doriane Lucia, Humane Educator.

Doriane formed Humane Nation.in 2002 and continues to be passionate about creating programs that offer solutions. She received her Master's degree in Humane Education from Cambridge College and The Institute for Humane Education. Doriane is also a classically trained actress who understands the power of performance. However, her mission is to use that power to promote change related to issues that affect children with whom she has worked. The Power of Performance as an Education Tool © was her Master's thesis.

Doriane wrote a children's book called The Story of Lilly & Lou (based the true story of two dogs she and others rescued in New York City). In order to lessen the load for teachers and bring Humane Education into the classroom, Doriane collaborated with Humane Educators across the country to develop the Companion Humane Education Workbook.
Doriane has conducted Humane Education lessons with at-risk youth in Los Angeles and countless other children on the East Coast.

She also conducted a strand at The University of Connecticut Confratute which helped teachers to recognize their gifts so that they could in turn recognize the gifts and voices in their students.

While Doriane will never stop rescuing animals in need, she believes in the power of education and loves seeing the transformation in children when they realize that they have the power to effect change.
