Why did you want to work with animals? I wanted to work with animals because all my life I’ve been surrounded by them. They bring you so much joy on your best and worst days. To be able to not only experience that joy at work, but help other people’s pets and animals so they can continue to feel that, is the best thing ever in my opinion.

Did you grow up with pets or have pets of your own? I’ve always had animals in my life growing up whether it was my own animal or my family’s. I myself have had my fair share of dogs, cats and reptiles. You name it, I’ve had it! As of right now I own one dog name Jamie who is a high energy love bug who we believe to be a boxer shepherd pit mix who wants nothing but love and attention.

Where did you grow up? I grew up in Chicago, went to Lane Tech for high school and loved every minute of it!

When you aren’t caring for pets, what can we find you doing? When I’m not with animals you can find me drawing, working on music or binge watching my favorite shows with my dog.

What is a hidden talent of yours? Cooking. I’m not one to show off my skills or boast, so when I get the opportunity to showcase my skills a lot of times people are surprised or shocked that I am a pretty decent cook.
