Why did you want to work with animals? Well, who wouldn’t want to work with animals? I find great joy when my customers come and greet me with excitement. This is a no stress job with lots of love and wet kisses from the pups.
Did you grow up with pets or have pets of your own? I grew up with a dachshund, named Heidi. In college, I rescued a stray cat and the rest is history. I have owned 5 more since that first rescue. All of my cats have been adopted/rescued. We currently still have 3 living with us. Their names are Yahoo, Misty and Zulu.
Where did you grow up? Sycamore, IL
When you aren’t caring for pets, what can we find you doing? I currently have a high school sophomore at home. He plays basketball and baseball which occupies a lot of my time. I enjoy baking, crafting, yard work and home projects. I also enjoy walking with friends and biking.
What is a hidden talent of yours? I learned to downhill ski at 47 years old.
