I fell in love with dogs through interactions with dogs in my neighborhood growing up. I wanted a job I knew I'd enjoy. It's hard to stay mad or sad when working with cute, furry faces. 

My goal is ultimately to help each animal to feel better or help them to continue to remain healthy. I want owners to know we're here because we love animals and treat them as we would our own. 

I am one of three kids. I have an older brother and older sister. I love that this job helps me be close to my mom and dad, so I can be there to help them out. There's also Atticus, a 2 year old miniature schnauzer that keeps us on our toes. 

Keep an open mind: first impressions aren't always right, there's often more than one way to reach your goals, and you never know what has shaped someone's experiences.
