Brandi Wyatt Biehl, a Wabash County native, is living her lifelong dream: working with marine animals.
 
Since childhood, Biehl, a Northfield graduate, has had her eyes set on ocean life.
 
“I’m originally from Indiana and literally sitting on my mom’s lap when I was 5-years-old I went to a sea life show at SeaWorld and I looked back at her and I said, ‘I like those fish,’ and, I’ll never forget this, but she goes, ‘Well maybe you’ll work with them someday,’” Biehl told The Paper of Wabash County with a smile. “And to her disappoint and peril, I never stopped thinking of that. I since became obsessed.”
