I've always been around animals and dogs since I could walk, and when I was old enough to work I knew there would be no better fit than working with animals! I have volunteered at a shelter and worked professionally with animals in a retail environment. Due to a heavy school schedule I had to leave that job but now that Wag! exists I can still work with pups!

I grew up with a beautiful Golden Retriever/Australian Shepherd named Annie, and also took care of my next door neighbor's Italian Greyhounds almost every day from middle school to high school. I moved into Chicago after high school and became a freelance film director/editor. After a few months in the city I got a job with a local dogwalking company for about 8 months - definitely my favorite non-film job I've ever had. I moved to LA and NYC for a while, but I'm now living in Pilsen and am looking forward to biking around and hanging with pups again!
