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!

​Hi! I have had the great pleasure of having dogs in my life since I was born. One of the things I enjoy the most is walking our dogs, enabling them to get fresh air, stretch their legs, and read the neighborhood canine news. Last year, we had the honor of becoming a forever home for a puppy mill rescue. She had it rough the first few years of her life but now is doing great and has become a cherished member of the family.​
