From the time I was a little girl, I always found myself sneaking animals into my childhood house to help them. I mean EVERYTHING. From a giant moth and roly polies, to frogs, snakes, dogs, and cats. Now, while my mother wasn’t always pleased with my surprises, it’s pretty fair to say that from a young age, I knew helping animals was my jam, they were in my heart. I began my work in the animal welfare field as an Animal Control Officer in Kansas City. I learned so much, met many people from different walks of life with stories, handled an array of animals and wildlife, my heart grew a hundred times bigger. I recently began my role at SNKC and I can say I am truly grateful to be a part of such a wonderful team. Each day I learn something new and I’m challenged in a new way. The mission of this organization, to simply put it, is to help. Help our fellow man, so that he or she may be able to better help their pet. Whether it is educating, helping acquire resources, or being a resource, everyday this organization strives to make the world a better place for people and pets, and that is something I am so happy I can be a part of.
Now, when I’m not at SNKC spending my days around fuzzies and furries, you can find me at home with my own fluff kids- 2 dogs, 2 turtles, a chinchilla, and a snake. I like to strum away on my guitar and sing, as if I’m a rockstar. As a HUGE Kansas City enthusiast, I can often be found cheering at a Royals, Chiefs, or Sporting game. You can also catch me bartending in the evenings at a local bar in Waldo.
