I am a recent college grad and new resident of Roanoke. I have been around dogs throughout my life and have volunteered at my local SPCA helping to walk and socialize dogs to be better suited for adoption. I love to be outdoors and often go running or walking at various parks and hiking trails. I am very flexible with my schedule and look forward to helping in anyway that I can.
