What is your favorite part of your job?  My favorite part of this job is that no matter if I’m having a bad day, I can snuggle up with a dog and they make it better.

What is your best memory or day on the job? My best memory so far is seeing Sophie run and jump to pop bubbles! It was the first time I’d ever seen a dog play with bubbles before. She was having a blast and I was enjoying it as much as her just watching!

What is something unique about you? I have been to 48 states, 13 countries, and 4 continents. I hope to visit Alaska and Hawaii before I’m 35 and really want to go to Australia some day. I want to see as much of the world as I can.

If you didn’t work here what would you be doing?  I would still be working with animals somewhere still, a zoo, an aquarium, a farm, any place I can work with animals.

Tell us why you are passionate about dogs and any involvement outside of All About Dogs that you have with dogs or animals.  My family always had a dog or two growing up and for as long as I remember; I’ve wanted to work with animals. My ma said since I was 4 years old, I told her I was going to grow up and work with the whales and dolphins!

What is your favorite dog breed and why? I don’t know if I have a favorite breed but I love the personalities of Golden Retrievers, they’re so loving and kind and can be so silly.
