CYNTHIA MOORE-TREADWELL Reigning Reptiles, Buford, GA

Cynthia Moore-Treadwell turned a lifelong love of reptiles into a career — several, in fact. She works as an animal handler in the TV and film industry, and provides expert care to celebrities with snakes. Moore-Treadwell opened Reigning Reptiles in 2014. Keeping her sane are 12-year-old son Magnus Moore and a menagerie of rescue pets, including an Argentine Boa named Alice Cooper.
