Started at Prairie Path: August 2019
Why did you want to work with animals? I absolutely love animals. Growing up my family had two dogs and two cats. As I got older I fell more and more in love with animals and how they make you feel and the bond you develop with them. I have four American Akita’s that run my life and I adore and love them more than anything! I’ve been very blessed with my career choices with certificates in surgical/dental assisting but I knew I wanted to work with animals instead because of how much I love and care for them! I couldn’t be happier to have found Prairie Path because I get to go to work everyday doing something I love.
Did you grow up with pets or have pets of your own? Growing up we had two cats named Phoebe and Isabelle, two chihuahuas Honey and Cocoa and when I became older Maya my Siberian husky joined the family along with my sisters Italian greyhound Lira. My fiancé John and I have 4 American Akita’s names Melo (mellow), Saint, Ashe, and B.G. (Big Girl). The name literally suits her!
Where did you grow up? Park Ridge
When you aren’t caring for pets, what can we find you doing? I’m usually outdoors with my Akita’s!
What is a hidden talent of yours? I’ll tell you when I figure it out!
