If you were to ask me why I decided to work with animals, it would be for many reasons. I connect with them on so many levels that I just don't with other things. They say the eyes are the windows to someones soul, and I find this very true with animals. I find a happiness working with them that I don't find with anything else. So ask me why and I'll say that it's because they're my life and will always have a place in my heart, and I would'nt want to do anything else.
All animals truly hold a special place in my heart. I have been in animal care since 2003 doing many aspects of the field. I worked previously in child care, but I found myself wanting something more. From grooming to boarding and even technician assisting, I've gotten to care for many pets in lots of different ways. I've learned so much over the years and I look forward to learning and experiencing more in the future.
At home, I have a beautiful (and spoiled) Schnauzer named Nina and a playful cat named Jada.
