Newark Pet Grooming & Boarding
Kennel ManagerAmanda Lee
School: University of Delaware, Bachelor in Animal Science and minoring in Wildlife Conservation
I graduated with a Bachelor's degree from the University of Delaware in 2005, majoring in Animal Science and minoring in Wildlife Conservation. I have worked in kennels for 14 years, holding jobs at 5 kennels and 2 hospitals in 3 states. My husband and I have two children: Lola the cocker spaniel and Kiwi the budgie. When I'm not working, you can find me playing video games (mostly RPGs) and writing.
"I love animals and have always preferred working with them over humans, so all of my jobs have been with furry and feathered creatures. When I was younger I wanted to be a veterinarian, but after working as a vet tech I decided that the medical side of the job wasn't for me. I prefer to take care of them, feed them, clean up after them, interact with them, and make sure they are happy. In the kennel our goals are to ensure that the pets are taken care of and that their stay is a positive experience for them."
