What is your birthday? April 17th.
What are your hobbies? I like collecting coins. Also love to ride my ATV and go on motorcycle rides with friends. As well as photography.
What is something unique about you? I as born in Houston,Texas and I used to be (still am) a country girl if you call it that. A lot of rodeos and cowgirl boots. Also I used to do a lot of ballet and ice skating as a kid.
If you didn’t work here what would you be doing? I would probably be working on furthering my photography and most likely end up with some dog type job.
Tell us why you are passionate about dogs and any involvement outside of All About Dogs that you have with dogs or animals. I’ve lived with dogs since I was little kid and I’ve got my own pup now. They give me comfort and I just love how happy they are. I have a goal to help keep as many dogs out of shelters as I can. Being around dogs teaches me a lot of about myself and how to be a much calmer person.
What is your favorite dog breed and why? German Shepherds. I grew up with mixes but I always loved how loyal and gorgeous the purebreds are.
